Roadworks set to begin on busy Cheltenham road have been delayed due to M5 crash

Roadworks that were due to start on a busy Cheltenham roundabout have been delayed while diversions remain in place following a fatal collision on the M5 motorway .

Gloucestershire Highways crews were due to start work at Coronation Square this morning, with the work meaning daytime closures until Wednesday, August 14.

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

Work is due to take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day, excluding weekends, but it will remain open during peak travel times.

The work will see 2,888 square metres of resurfacing works carried out, using 414 tonnes of material.

However, following the fatal crash on the M5 overnight that has led to the closure of the southbound carriageway between junctions 10 and 11, the work has been delayed.

A diversion is in place that is seeing vehicles using Tewkesbury Road, Princess Elizabeth Way and the A40 through Benhall roundabout to re-join the M5 at junction 11.

Once the M5 reopens, work will get underway and there will be a signed diversion in place.
