Highways information [v]

Information on your highways.

Overview

We are committed to improving journeys across the county, providing a high quality, more predictable and safer transport network for all users. Major projects on key parts of our highways network ensure greater transport connectivity that in turn compliments and stimulates business growth, ensuring infrastructure regeneration and housing meet the future needs of the businesses and people of Gloucestershire.

The portfolio of major projects seek to encourage sustainable travel by providing improved facilities for cyclists, pedestrians and bus users, whilst more widely mitigating any impact on the natural environment.

Typically, our major projects first go through a funding bid phase which includes expressions of interest and development of business cases to support the need for the project. The funding of major transport schemes and highway infrastructure is diverse. In recent years funding has been secured from a number of organisations, including (but not limited to):

  • Highways England
  • Homes England
  • Department for Transport
  • Gloucestershire First Local Enterprise Partnership
  • Gloucestershire County Council 

Successful bids then move through a more detailed design period, often with a planning stage, before procurement for the works takes place and construction starts. There are opportunities for residents and businesses to have their say throughout project planning and delivery. The comments and feedback we receive plays a significant role in shaping our projects to ensure they deliver for our communities. 

More information on our major projects, including those that are in design and construction, are listed on our major projects page.
