Roadworks in Midsomer Norton will be paused over Christmas under an embargo on planned works on major routes.
The embargo aims to help drivers during the Christmas and new year period and it begins on December 1 in Midsomer Norton.
The restrictions run until January 6 and apply to all planned works that restrict traffic flows and pedestrians, except essential utility and emergency works.
Martin Shields, Bath and North East Council’s corporate director, said: “This is a busy time of year with lots of people preparing for the festive season and visiting family and friends, as well as being a very important time of year for the economy.
"We hope this embargo will allow residents and visitors to Bath and North East Somerset to have smooth journeys with the least disruption possible.”
