Temporary M32 closure
There will be some closures on the M32 between junctions 1 and 3 from 8pm on Friday 10th June until 6am on Monday 13th June. These closures are to put a new bridge in place over the motorway, and will ensure that this work can be carried out safely. Alternative routes in and out of Bristol will be clearly signposted during the closures. You can download an information sheet about the closures (196KB), as well as a poster to put up in your workplace (189KB).
Visit to Engine Shed inspires Code Club kids
Code Clubs are a nationwide network of volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9 to 11. Currently there are 25 clubs running in primary schools across Bristol. One of these clubs, from Brislington’s West Town Lane Academy, visited Engine Shed last month to see some real world applications of coding in start-up companies based in the city. Find out more about their visit and how you can get involved in Code Clubs on our website.
