Meanwhile the county council  will be refreshing the surface on part of Stroud Road in Gloucester overnight, 19 to 21 November.

The top part of Stroud Road is a popular cut through between Bristol Road and Clifton Road, and is in need of some attention. The road will be closed overnight between 7pm and 7am to try to avoid disruption to visitors attending the Victorian Christmas Market at Gloucester Quays.

Cllr Pam Tracey, local member for Westgate and Hempsted, said, "One of my favourite parts to the Victorian Market is the old fashioned steamrollers, but I'm pleased to see highways technology has moved on a lot since then! So much so that crews only need a few days to put down a long lasting surface on Stroud Road. Please make sure you plan your journeys around this closure, it'll be worth it in the long run."

Visitors to Gloucester may need to plan their journeys during the three evenings of work. Access to the Quays will be available via Trier Way, Bristol Way or St Ann Way only. For vehicles approaching from Southgate Street (A4301), there is no right-hand turn at the St Ann Way junction and the route via Stroud Road / Bristol Road will not be available during our working hours.

Access to Aldi on Clifton Road will be available from Bristol Road only during our working hours.
