Overnight improvements coming to Tewkesbury Road, Cheltenham
The busy A4019 Tewkesbury Road next to the Kingsditch Trading Estate in Cheltenham is being resurfaced from 30 April.
Used by thousands of commuters, businesses and shoppers, the main route into and out of the north west of Cheltenham is subject to heavy wear and tear. The road upgrade will mean a quicker, safer and altogether more pleasant journey into Cheltenham.
To help minimise disruption the road will be closed overnight from 30 April to 14 May (excluding Saturday, Sundays and bank holiday Monday). The resurfacing will take place between 7pm to 7am to allow the road to be open during peak times. A diversion suitable for all type of vehicles will be in place.
Cllr Mark Hawthorne, Leader of Gloucestershire County Council, said: “We're resurfacing this popular route which forms part of our £150 million investment to keep Gloucestershire moving. These works will have a major benefit to local residents as well as be a great contribution to this area of Cheltenham. I would like to reassure road users that by resurfacing the road overnight, we will keep disruption to a minimum and reduce potential delays.”
Cllr Bernard Fisher, county councillor for St Paul’s and Swindon, said: “I’ve been calling on the county council to complete this work for some time, so I welcome these improvements and ask that road users please bear with the highways team while they carry out this essential work.”
