Warning - Forest road closes for essential repairs

The main route between Lydney and Bream is getting a brand new road surface to help extend its life span.

During the work, 532 tonnes of asphalt will be laid on Bream Road in Lydney, enough to cover 3,500 metres squared or around half a football pitch.

The work on the B4321 will take place from Monday 16th October until Thursday 19th October with a full road closure from 7.30am to 5.30pm each day.

A signed diversion using equivalent roads will be in place during the closure. Locals will be able to use alternative routes, but the county council has to advertise diversions on like-for-like roads.

Access will be maintained to Lydney and District Hospital through the rear entrance via Grove Road throughout the resurfacing scheme.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said: "This work in Lydney will help make this important stretch of road smooth and pothole free in the future.

"We appreciate there will be a small amount of disruption, however many locals and commuters will benefit from this new surface. I'd like to thank everyone for their patience during the works."

Cllr Alan Preest, county councillor for Lydney, said: "This is brilliant news for the Lydney residents and businesses that will benefit from this improvement work.

"It'll make a real difference to a regularly used route and reduce the need for roadworks in the future."
