It’s the final count down


The £14.5m Elmbridge Court scheme is entering its final phase. For the next month crews will be working through the night resurfacing the whole roundabout. Drivers are asked to allow extra time for their journeys.

Next week crews will start to resurface the Elmbridge Court roundabout, which is the final stage of the year long improvement scheme.

From Monday 21 August to Thursday 24 August, the roundabout will remain open during peak hours, but will reduce to a single lane on Cheltenham Road East and West in the evenings so the work can be carried out safely.

There will be full closures in place on the A40 Golden Valley Route East and Westbound, the A40 Northern Bypass North and Southbound and the A417 Barnwood Link North and Southbound, between 10pm and 5am.

A signposted diversion will in place, which uses a combination of Tewkesbury Rd, Estcourt Road, Barnwood Road, Corinium Avenue, A417, M5, A40 and Cheltenham Road.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “The much needed improvements to the Elmbridge roundabout is almost complete. Over the next four weeks drivers should expect delays, but I’d ask them to remain patient with us.

“This roundabout is one of the most used in our county and the project to improve it was vital. We’re getting close to the finish line now, and we’re approaching it on time and within budget.”
