Warning: speed limit on busy road set to change

Motorists have been warned of changes to a major route into Cheltenham.

Gloucestershire County Council has announced that work to reduce speeds from 40 to 30mph on the A40 near Charlton Kings has begun, following consultation with residents.

The 40mph limit that begins near Glenfall Way and ends just east of Woodgate Close will become 30mph as of next month.

Changes include building three new traffic islands to slow traffic, as well as alterations to road signs and painted lines to bring the new lower speed limit into effect.

During the work, the road will remain open with temporary traffic lights until the 27 April.

It will then be closed from 2-16 May, between 9.30am-4pm, so that the final stages of construction can go ahead safely.

For traffic approaching from the east the diversion route will be right at the A435, left at A436 (Seven Springs) then left back on to A40, and vice versa.
