Key Temple Guiting tourist route to be resurfaced after holiday season
A popular route into Cotswold Farm Park will benefit from resurfacing after the busy season.
Work will be completed using the lowest carbon emissions of any construction process currently used in the UK.
The road will be closed from 5th – 15th September between 7.30am to 5.00pm, excluding the weekend.
Visitors travelling from the south will still be able to access the Farm Park as usual throughout the scheme.
Signs will be in place to direct traffic coming from the north along the diversion route. From B4077 junction with Buckle Street to go north: follow B4077 through Ford, turn left to Cutsdean and re-join Buckle Street.
From B4077 junction with Buckle Street to go south: turn left and proceed south through Temple Guiting, Kineton and Barton, then left on the B4068 through Naunton to rejoin Buckle Street, and vice versa.
The resurfacing will be carried out using a ‘retread’ process, which involves removing and relaying the existing road surface with new material. All work is carried out on site, making this a cost effective and energy efficient alternative to traditional resurfacing.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “We have planned this work carefully to keep an important Cotswolds route in good condition while also minimising disruption to residents.
“Thanks to smart work by our highways team, this resurfacing will be completed using the lowest carbon emissions of any construction process currently used in the UK.”
Cllr Nigel Moor, county councillor for Stow-on-the-Wold, said: “This timely refresh for a route into one of the area’s most popular visitor destinations should come as good news for local residents. It’s excellent to see the county council’s continued investment is keeping local roads in peak condition.”
