Main route in to Gloucester will be closed tonight with further disruption this week
By James Young | 22nd July 2019
One of the main commuter routes in to and out of Gloucester will be closed overnight this week.
From tonight, sections of the Cross Keys roundabout that links the south of the city to the M5 Motorway will be closed between 7pm and 6am the following morning.
It will mean that arteries off the roundabout will be closed to allow crews to safely complete the resurfacing works.
#A38 #CrossKeys roundabout scheme - there will be night time closures (1930 - 0600) next week from 22 July on different arms of the roundabout. Diversion signs will be in place for the full closures, and further details can be found here: https://t.co/kClmXebDMa pic.twitter.com/fteTfSMPUc— Glos Roads (@GlosRoads) July 19, 2019
When complete, the £3.84 million scheme will transform the roundabout and access roads to allow greater numbers of vehicles to flow between the city and M5.
Work has been ongoing for the last two months, but it's over the next week that the worst disruption is expected with the road closures.
