Stroud's Rowcroft set for resurface

Published
14.11.2016

Gloucestershire County Council's highways team will be carrying out the improvements later this month.

Road crews will be resurfacing a length of over 155 metres between Monday 21st and Wednesday 23rd November.

The work is part of the county council's ongoing commitment to improving Gloucestershire's roads.

To keep the workforce safe while the large machinery is on site, the road will need to close to traffic each week day from 7:30am until 5.30pm. The road will be open at all other times.

The area being resurfaced covers 1000 square metres beginning at the junction with Russell Street, going under the railway bridge and then down to the junction with Cheapside.

A clearly signed diversion route in place during the closure times and access will be maintained for pedestrians.

To maintain town centre and railway station access the one-way loop from Russell Street, right onto Rowcroft / King Street, right onto George Street and back onto London Road will be kept open. There will be just a couple of instances at the Russell Street / Rowcroft junction where access will need to be closed for up to 15 minutes. 

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, "As we continue our road improvements across the county, we've arranged for the resurfacing on Rowcroft to be completed before winter sets in. I hope the travelling public will be pleased with the smoother surface once our work is complete."

Cllr Sarah Lunnon, local county councillor for Stroud Central said, "I'm pleased that the county council is doing a full resurface along the road at Rowcroft and I'd like to thank local people in advance for their patience while the work is being carried out."

The county council's highway crews work around the clock every day of the year to keep Gloucestershire safe and moving. Anyone on Twitter can follow @GlosRoads to find out what is being worked on at the moment and look out for the hashtag #highways365 for the latest updates.
