Traffic diverted as major road resurfaced
By Bev Hawes | 11th June 2018
Nigh-time diversions will be in place for motorists while a major route through the Cotswolds is upgraded.
The A429 road between the Todenham junction and the Ashton Magna junction, the main route out of Moreton-in-Marsh, is being given a new lease of life by Gloucestershire County Council.
Crews will be resurfacing the road between 7pm-7am from Monday 25th June until Monday 16th July (excluding weekends). A full road closure will be in place throughout the works.
Every effort is being taken to minimise disruption so the road will still be open during peak times. Crews will complete vital resurfacing along the 25,406 square metres stretch of road with 4050 tonnes of material.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: "We have scheduled this route for resurfacing as part of the council's ongoing £150 million investment. These essential improvements will create a smooth and pothole free journey for all road users and by doing it overnight we'll minimise the disruption."
Cllr Lynden Stowe, county councillor for Campden-Vale, said: "This is a busy main route out of Moreton-in-Marsh, so I'm delighted that the road will benefit from a complete refresh. I would like to thank road users for their patience while the work is carried out."
What's the diversion route?
Follow the A429 (Fosse Way) to the roundabout. At the roundabout take the third exit and continue along the A3400 all the way to Chipping Norton. In approach to Chipping Norton, at the roundabout take the first exit to Banbury Road. Continue along the road to the double roundabout then take the A44 towards Moreton-in-Marsh. At the roundabout with the A429 take the second exit. The route is the same in reverse.
