Temporary Traffic Order to close the road for carriageway resurfacing

A38 Tewkesbury Road and Deerhurst Junction.

For approximately 6 Nights (excl. Sunday) between the hours of 19:00 to 07:00      

The PLANNED start and end dates are currently Monday 8th July to Saturday 13th July, however keep an eye on the web page detailed below or the signs on site for any short notice changes.

The resurfacing programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, changes in temperatures and other weather events as well as plant breakdown and unforeseen technical issues that arise once work has begun. All this means scheme dates and details can change at short notice. Highways appreciate this is inconvenient, and they will keep their online schedule and social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen.

ROAD CLOSURE: Highways will be resurfacing the road at the above location as part of a promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and the work force, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

Due to the type of engineering activities required with carriageway resurfacing, the road closure can cover an area greater than the area being resurfaced. This is to allow activities, such as movement and placement of machinery and material.

Highways appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and the team working on the road safe it is necessary. The work has been planned so that they can be in and out as quickly as possible and have tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience.

ACCESS: In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, Highways we are not permitted to allow any person or vehicle to proceed along the closed roads; with the exception of pedestrian access to properties, emergency vehicles, and statutory undertakers responding to an emergency situation.

Therefore, if you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the road closure is in place, we ask you to please make alternative arrangements.

In exceptional circumstances, some level of access may be considered. This will be on a case by case basis and only where it doesn’t impact on our ability to carry out the work and where it is safe to do so. Any access during this time would be at the drivers own risk as it is a works site and may have raised iron works or a temporary surface.

 DIVERSIONS: Highways have created an official diversion route which will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road. Highways appreciate you may know an alternative route, however please be aware alternative routes which are outside of the road closure area are used at driver’s discretion.Contact Us

Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. If you have any queries please contact Highways on 08000 514514.
