Night closures on Llanthony Road as works continue

Gloucester's Llanthony Road will be closed for two nights this month, to allow for improvement works to move to the next stage.

The road will be closed between St Ann Way and the junction for Gloucestershire College from 7pm on Thursday February 23 to 6am on Friday February 24, and then from 7pm on Friday February 24 to 6am on Saturday February 25.

This will allow work to switch the traffic from the eastern side of Llanthony Road to the western part, so work can start on the other side of the road.

Access to St Ann Way will be unaffected by the closure, and access to Hemmingsdale Road, Sudmeadow Road and businesses within the closure will also be maintained from the Gloucestershire College junction end of the closure.

To access Spinnaker Road, road users will need to turn left out of St Ann Way and travel around the roundabout before making a left turn into Spinnaker Road.

Pedestrians will be unable to use the footway on the eastern side of the road and will need to cross the road to use the new footway on the western side.

The work on the Llanthony Road section of the A430 will see widening of the carriageway to two lanes in each direction at this well-known pinch point, which will help to improve the traffic flow on a major route through the city.

It will also see widening of the footpaths on both sides to incorporate a fully segregated cycleway and pedestrian path on the northern verge, and cycle priority over motorised users at side road junctions.

St Ann Way will be widened to provide two right turn lanes into Llanthony Road, and new traffic lights at Sudmeadow Road to help traffic to flow better. The side road junctions will be upgraded and there will also be improvements to pedestrian crossings.

Work on this critical scheme began in July 2022 and is due to be completed by late summer 2023.

The funding for the scheme has come from multiple sources, including £2 million from the Government through the Gloucestershire GFirst LEP Growth Deal and part of Gloucestershire County Council's Levelling Up contribution of £12.822 million.
