The repair work has led to the closure of one lane on each side of the carriageway on Brunel Way. Traffic information network Travelwest warned to expect long delays at rush hour yesterday on the Portway southbound and Hotwell Road westbound.

Drivers have been warned to seek alternative routes where possible as the city centre was gridlocked yesterday evening due to the works at Cumberland Basin. This had a knock-on effect on the buses, which were severely delayed in the area.
