Busy Cheltenham road to be closed for a week for essential resurfacing work

Essential resurfacing works will be carried out on one of Cheltenham's main arterial routes next month leading to daytime closures of Coronation Square.

Gloucestershire County Council's £150million investment in the county's roads will mean that sections of Princess Elizabeth Way will be closed between 9.30am and 3.30pm on weekdays.

The closures will run from Thursday, August 8 through to Wednesday August 14 with the road open during the busy morning and evening commute.

A signed diversion route will be in operation during the closure that will see 2,888square metres of new road laid, with 414 tonnes of material as the existing carriageway is at the end of its lifespan.

Councillpr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: "As part of the county council's £150 million investment, we make sure the worst roads are tackled first.

"We have identified the need to take swift action, resurfacing parts of this busy area in the west of Cheltenham in order to keep Gloucestershire moving.

"Princess Elizabeth Way is a key route for commuters heading onto the A40, with hundreds of vehicle movements everyday.

"I'd like to reassure residents and road users that we will keep disruption to a minimum and thank them for bearing with us."
