Roadworks pending for notorious junction

Work to tackle the notorious junction of the busy commuter road linking Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham is due to start.

Pitchcombe junction will be known to all who travel the A7173 from Gloucester to Stroud or the A46 out of the Five Valley's capital to the city, to Painswick or on to Cheltenham.

Scene of a number of accidents over the years the T-junction to some, slip road or right-hand turn into on-coming traffic for others, is due to be upgraded in the spring.

Funding for the work, to improve the junction's safety, comes from the Department for Transport.

It will be the final stage of improvements along the A4173 which have included resurfacing work, drainage repair and clearance of vegetation.

It is understood the county council's highways department has decided on a new give-way T-junction with a right-hand turning lane on the A46.

No speed reductions will come into force at this stage.

Punchline has asked the county council for dates when the work is due to start.
