The plans were originally rejected after strong local opposition, but granted on appeal by the secretary of state for the department of communities and local government in 2017.

The roadworks started in May and mean there are two-way traffic lights in operation, causing delays in both directions during the morning and evening commute.

According to Gloucestershire Highways, there is no quick relief for the hundreds of commuters that use the route to get into and out of Gloucester.

The current expected completion date for the roadworks is Hallowe'en, October 31, 2019.

As for the housing development, outline permission has been granted and now developer Robert Hitchins homes are running through the numerous conditions levied on them before work can begin.
