Roadworks closure of A36 near Bath postponed until next week because of cold weather
Resurfacing work on a stretch of one of the busiest roads into Bath has been postponed because of the recent cold weather.
A section of the A36 around Monkton Combe and Brassknocker Hill was due to be closed over four nights this week.
Work did begin last Friday, but was halted almost immediately so the Highways Agency could wait for the weather to get warmer.
It has now been rescheduled for overnight between Monday, March 18 until Thursday, March 21, with the road being closed between 8pm and 6am.

Project sponsor Rachel Scott said the work was essential maintenance and included surface repairs and white lining.
She said: “We have carefully planned this work to take place when traffic flows are at their lowest to cause the least possible disruption but we would advise road users to allow more time for their journeys.”
Clearly signed diversion routes will be in place throughout the closures and local access will be maintained.
A signed diversion route from the M4 will be in place, with southbound traffic diverted from Bath taking the A4 to Chippenham, then the A350 south to Warminster and re-joining the A36.
Traffic travelling northbound, towards Bath, will follow the same diversion route in reverse.
