A431 is an A road running from Bristol to Bath in England. It runs parallel to, and about 3 miles (4.8 km) to the north of, the A4, the principal route between Bristol and Bath on the south side of the River Avon.
The A431 begins at a junction with the
A420 at St George, about a mile (1.6 km) east of central Bristol. From there it runs through Hanham, Longwell Green, Bitton and Kelston to Newbridge, Bath, where it joins the A4 which continues to central Bath.
2014 landslip and toll road [ edit ]
In February 2014 the road was closed near
Kelston Park due to a landslip. The closure lasted until 17 November 2014 as the ground continued to move. [1 ] [2 ] [3 ]
Local resident Mike Watts created a private
toll road over agricultural land to bypass the closed section, which opened in August 2014. [4 ] [5 ]
