Major road through Gloucestershire closing for three-week stint of roadworks TONIGHT

One of the busiest roads in the north of Gloucestershire will be closed overnight for more than three weeks from this evening.

The A435 Evesham Road is being resurfaced and will be closed between the Saphire Road roundabout in Bishop's Cleeve and the junction with the Seven Bends road at Pamington.

The work is part of Gloucestershire County Council's £150million investment in the county's roads.

In order to keep disruption to a minimum, the work will be carried out between 7pm and 7am each night, excluding weekends.

The work is set to start tonight, Tuesday, September 10 and be completed on Thursday, October 3.

An official signposted diversion route, taking traffic through Tewkesbury, Coombe Hill, Cheltenham and to Bishop's Cleeve will be in operation during the work.

Councillor Vernon Smith, cabinet member responsible for highways, said: "This is a well-used road that is nearing the end of its life so it is important we carry out this resurfacing work as part of the county council's £150 million investment.

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

Cllr Rob Bird, local councillor for Bishop's Cleeve, said: "I'm extremely pleased that this key stretch of road is now being resurfaced as this will have such a positive impact for so many local residents.

"Every effort is being made to minimise disruption and I hope people will be able to plan their journeys accordingly to minimise any inconvenience while this vital work takes place."
