By James Young | 16th August 2019
Part of Cheltenham's inner ring road will be closed during the evening and overnight next week for resurfacing work.
Highways crews will be working on a section of the A46 Berkeley Street - a key route that links Albion Street to the High Street.
The closures will run from 7pm each night through to 7am the following morning from Monday, August 18 through to Friday, August 23.
The road will remain open during peak travel times.
The road will be closed from the junction with St James' Street, through to the junction with the High Street. There will also be no access to or from Hewlett Road.
In a statement, Gloucestershire County Council said: "When the road is closed a signed diversion route using roads which are suitable for all vehicles will be in place.
"Your highways crews will complete vital resurfacing works along 2,485 square metres of the road with 593 tonnes of material.
Councillor Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: "We will be resurfacing Berkeley Street as part of our £150 million investment to keep Gloucestershire moving.
"This road is a popular route in Cheltenham and the overnight work will help make journeys around the town centre smoother for both drivers and cyclists."
Cllr Colin Hay, local councillor for All Saints and Oakley, said: "This is a busy route for road users, so it is vital we resurface and tackle the structural issues of this well-used road.
"I would like to thank local residents in advance for their patience and cooperation while this important work is carried out."
There will also be a one-day road closure for traffic signal works on Wednesday 4 September.
