Major city road to close for resurfacing

A major route on the outskirts of Gloucester will be shut for two weeks from next Monday.

Field Court Drive in Quedgeley will be closed for resurfacing between 14th and 29th August. It will be reopened at weekends, evenings after 5.30pm and the August bank holiday.

The road, which is a main route through Quedgeley, has reached the end of its life expectancy and needs a new surface.

The work will take place on weekdays from 14 to 29 August between 7.30am and 5.30pm. Crews will be working in a number of different sections along the stretch of road, so it will be closed in different places for slightly shorter times. This will help limit disruption to residents who rely on this route for access.

The 12 bus route will not be picking up passengers from stops on Field Court Drive during this time. Details of diversions and alternative stops are available on the Stagecoach website.

The council planned the work for August to avoid disrupting school run traffic.

A diversion will be in place via Bristol Road and Severn Vale Drive, and this is suitable for all vehicles including HGVs.
