Resurfacing on Hales Road, Cheltenham


As part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150 million investment into your highways, crews will be resurfacing overnight on Hales Road in Cheltenham between 21 and 27 November.


Crews will be working overnight to restore 7719 square metres of well-used Cheltenham carriageway, laying 908 tonnes of asphalt. Hales Road will be closed between 7pm – 7am to try to minimise disruption.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said, “I’m determined to deliver on our promise to invest £150 million into Gloucestershire’s roads in every area of our county. Hales Road in Cheltenham will benefit from the new smooth road surface once work is complete. By carrying out the resurfacing overnight we will keep disruption to a minimum. I’d like to thank residents and businesses for their patience while we carry out this work.”

What’s the diversion route? (suitable for heavies)

From the south end of Hales Road proceed along the A435 turning right at the junction with St James’ Street. Turn left at the junction with the A46 and proceed onto Fairview Road. At the junction with the A46 Portland Street turn right and then left onto the A46 Clarence Road. Follow the road onto the B4632 Prestbury Road and at the junction with the B4075 Priors Road turn right. Follow this to the north point of the closure.

The diversion is the same in reverse until drivers reach the A46 Winchcombe Street. Follow the A46 Winchcombe Street until the junction with Fairview Road and turn left. Proceed along the A46 until the junction with the A435, following the right hand turn lane and continue along the A435 until the south point of the closure.
