Motorists face diversions for night time road resurfacing
By Bethany Winter | 12th September 2018
A busy Gloucestershire route is being closed for several nights to allow resurfacing work to take place.
The A46 Shurdington Road, Brockworth will be resurfaced from the Cross Hands roundabout to the Shurdington roundabout. The road will be closed overnight from Tuesday 25th September to Friday 5th October.
To help keep disruption to a minimum, work will take place between 7pm - 7am (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights). A diversion will be in place. Highways crews will complete resurfacing over 3,665 sq m of road with approximately 361 tonnes of material.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: "As part of our £150m investment, we are continuing to invest in our local roads and keep our county moving. By carrying out the resurfacing at night, our crews will keep disruption to a minimum and reduce potential delays."
Cllr Robert Vines, county councillor for Brockworth, said: "The A46 Shurdington Road is a very busy A road and the resurfacing is going to have a significant benefit for the local community here in Brockworth. The road has been slowly deteriorating so I welcome these improvements and ask that residents please bear with us while we carry out this essential work."
What's the diversion route?
From the southern extents of the closure continue along Ermin Street and Hucclecote Road until you reach the junction with Delta Way, then turn right and continue along the Brockworth Bypass. At the Zoons Court Roundabout take the second exit onto the A417. Follow the road towards Brockworth, then take the slip road and at the roundabout take the second exit. The diversion is the same in reverse.
