Major Cheltenham road to close for resurfacing

The A435 junction with Southam Lane near Cheltenham will be resurfaced overnight next week.

In order to minimise disruption, work will take place at night. Starting on Monday June 17, crews will be in action between 7pm and 7am, until Friday July 5 (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights).

A diversion route will be in place suitable for all vehicles that would usually use the closed road:

Due to the nature of the engineering equipment needed for carriageway resurfacing, the road closure area can cover an area greater than the area being resurfaced. This is to allow activities such as the moving of machinery and material safely.

Crews have planned the work so that they can be in and out as quickly as possible, and with minimal inconvenience to road users and local residents.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: "Resurfacing busy junctions is an important part of delivering our promise to invest £150 million into improving Gloucestershire's highways."

Cllr Roger Wilson, local councillor for Winchcombe and Woodmancote division, said: "This is a well-used section of road that will benefit from the new road surface once work is complete.

"I would encourage everyone to plan their journeys ahead, and thank residents for their patience".
