Eastern Avenue to close for resurfacing

Gloucestershire County Council highways crews will be resurfacing one of Gloucester's most important routes from today, September 23.

The northbound side of the A38 Eastern Avenue will be closed overnight from Friday, September 23 to Tuesday, October 4 for crews to lay a brand new surface.

The new surface is expected to stretch from the Metz Way junction to the Painswick Road Roundabout. Highways crews will use 890 tonnes of material to resurface the 7,556 square metre stretch of road.

To help keep disruption to a minimum, the council said work will take place between 7pm - 7am (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights) and a signed diversion route using roads which are suitable for all vehicles will be in place.

When the resurfacing work begins on the Coney Hill junction, the southbound side will also be closed due to safety reasons.

Cllr Dom Morris, cabinet member for highways, said: "We are committed to making improvements like this as part of our further £100 million investment in the county's highways network. Eastern Avenue is used by thousands of vehicles each day to get around the city, so it's really important it stays in good condition.

"We appreciate this work is inconvenient, but it will be done outside of peak hours to minimise any disruption. I'd like to thank local residents and road users for bearing with us."
