Published

Work will begin later this week to lay more than 3000 square meters of new road surface.

Highway crews will arrive at Cashes Green Road in Stroud on Friday 28th October to put down 554 tonnes of material as part of the local road improvements.

The work is planned to be complete by Wednesday 2nd November.

For the safety of the travelling public and the staff on site, it will be necessary to close the road to traffic during off peak times, from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day.

The road closure will be in place from the junction with Hyett Road to the junction with Westward Road.

Access will be maintained for pedestrians and local businesses will be open as usual.

Customers of the Co-Op foodstore, the Co-Op pharmacy, the Factory Outlet Shop and the Co-Op nursery will not be able to access the car park during the hours of the road closure and are encouraged to park nearby.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, "These are important improvements for Cashes Green Road and while I know there'll be some disruption while the work is carried out, it will be worth it when the work is finished.

"We've listened to local people and we've planned to do the resurfacing at off peak times to help the shops and businesses, and the travelling public. Thank you for bearing with us while we get the work done."

Cllr Brian Oosthuysen local county councillor for Rodborough said, "I'm happy that this essential work is being completed, and its down to the efforts of local people who have been pushing for them.

"I hope that the work is carried out safely and promptly, and I've been assured that local residents and businesses can contact the council, or myself, if they have any concerns during the work period."
