ROAD CLOSURE: Glos Highways will be resurfacing the road at the above location as part of their promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and their work force they have, 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. Glos Highway’s appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and their team working on the road safe it is necessary. Glos Highways have planned the work so they can be in and out as quickly as possible and have tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience.

The PLANNED start and end dates are currently Friday 17th January to Monday 20th January 2020, 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. Glos Highways appreciate this is inconvenient, and they will keep the online schedule and their social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen. You can find the most up to date scheme start and end dates and more information about this scheme on: -Website –www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/resurfacing-Facebook –Gloucestershire Roads-Twitter -@GlosRoads-Signs in the area. If you do not have access to the internet or social media you may wish to ask a friend or neighbour to help you access their website. If you know of neighbours who cannot access the website, please share this information with them.
ACCESS: In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, Glos Highways 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 their 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.
