Road repairs in Tetbury
Patching works to improve the road surface in Tetbury will be taking place over two days this month.
As part of the council's continued programme of road improvements ahead of the winter months, highways crews will be carrying out patching work at the junction of the Long St (A433) and New Church St (A4135) in Tetbury town centre.
The repairs were arranged following a routine inspection of the road. To minimise disruption the carriageway repair work will take place on 24th & 25th October 2016, during the October half term week.
So that crews are able carry out the work safely, there will be a temporary closure and diversions in place.
The county council appreciates that the diversions are long but legally must publicise an alternative route using equivalent A roads. People living locally, driving cars and small vans are welcome to use other alternative routes that they are aware of.
Part of the funding for these works has come from Cllr Tony Hicks through his highways local funding.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: "We've arranged for these works to take place over a couple of days during half term week.
"This will help to keep disruption to a minimum while we carry out these much needed works."
