Main road that links Gloucester to Painswick will be closed for three days

One of the main routes through Painswick has been closed for essential resurfacing works.

Crews will be working on the B4073 Pullens Road between 9.30am and 3.30pm today, with work continuing tomorrow and due for completion on Monday. There will be no weekend work.

According to Gloucestershire County Council, the road is in need of "essential resurfacing work as it has reached the end of its life.

Pullens Road forms the main link between the city of Gloucester and picturesque Painswick, with the closed section being a one-way route into the village and to the A46.

Gloucester Street, the other part of the one-way system that takes traffic from the A46 towards Gloucester will remain open.

An all-vehicle diversion has been put in place for the closure, which instead of the 250 or so metres of road, clocks in at almost 15 miles.

Councillor Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: "As part of the county council's £150 million investment, we have identified the need to resurface this route to make journeys smoother for motorists and cyclists.

"I would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience while this work is carried out."

Cllr Keith Rippington, local councillor for Bisley and Painswick, said: "This is a busy road so it is important we carry out this resurfacing work.

"I'd ask road users and the local community to bear with us and plan your journeys around it while it is taking place."
