The A38 roundabout now occupies the site of Bristol Road Lock and bridge. For restoration, one option here is that two new bridges will be built, one either side of the roundabout with the canal passing through the middle (of the roundabout). A new lock, to replace the Bristol Road Lock, will be built on the far side of the roundabout, on the M5 side.
