On Sunday 30 July National Grid will transport new transformers to replace old equipment at Iron Acton substation.
A special, heavy haulage lorry will transport the transformers, travelling between 10 and 15 miles per hour. A police escort and special haulage team will accompany the lorry.
The lorry departs from Avonmouth docks, leaving the M5 at Junction 14, passing through Cromhall, Bagstone and Rangeworthy to Latteridge.
National Grid say there are likely to be delays on the roads and hope we can plan ahead to avoid disruption.
Independent card shop operator Card N Wrap and Turkish barber and unisex hairdresser Karizma are opening in North Walk, and the Entertainer returns to the unit at the end of West Walk. This unit has now been split and so also welcomes Loungers, a locally based informal food led cafe/bar outlet, and Papa John’s pizza shop. These new additions bring further variety to the Centre and will open in the evenings.
