On 9 August, work will begin work to refresh the old road surface on Chesterton Lane as part of Gloucestershire County Council's promise to invest £150 million in the county's roads.

The road which leads to Cirencester's Love Lane Industrial estate will be closed for approximately 11 days (excl. weekends), between 09:30 and 15:30, until August 23.

In a letter to residents, David Hicks, lead engineer at GCC said: "To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 and 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road."

"Due to the type of engineering activities required with carriageway resurfacing, the road closure can cover an area greater than the area being resurfaced. This is to allow activities, such as movement and placement of machinery and material.

"We appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and the team working on the road safe it is necessary. We have planned the work so we can be in and out as quickly as possible and have tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience."

Below is a map showing the extents of the road closure.

An official diversion route will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road.
