Vital resurfacing ahead for Two Hedges Road
As part of the £150 million investment into Gloucestershire’s roads, the county council is resurfacing Two Hedges Road in Bishops Cleeve from Thursday 22nd November.
A full road closure will take place from Thursday 22nd November to Thursday 6th December (excluding weekends). To help minimise disruption to residents and Cleeve School, the resurfacing will take place between 9:30am to 3pm to allow the road to be open during peak times.
Your highways crews will complete vital resurfacing across 11,607m² of road with approximately 1,366 tonnes of material.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “We're laying a brand new surface on this popular route which forms part of our £150 million investment to improve Gloucestershire’s roads. These works will have a major benefit to local residents as well as keeping an important route in Bishops Cleeve moving safely and efficiently. I would like to thank residents and road users for their patience while this vital work is carried out.”
What’s the diversion route? (suitable for HGV’s)
From the western end of Two Hedges Road – follow Cheltenham Road south, take the first exit at the roundabout and continue south on the A435. Turn left onto Southam Lane and continue to Southam Village. At the junction with Old Road turn left, and then turn left again onto New Road. Follow this north to the eastern end of Two Hedges Road.
The diversion is the same in reverse except at the end of New Road, where southbound traffic should turn right to join the B4632, then right into Old Road and left onto Southam Lane.
