Weekend resurfacing for Bull Pitch, Dursley
Part of the A4135 in Dursley will be closed for resurfacing over the weekend of 2 September, between 7:30am and 5:30pm. The works will take place between the junction with Water Street, and just past the roundabout at the end of Bull Pitch on to A4135 and B4066.
The road, which is one of the main routes in to Dursley town centre, has reached the end of its life expectancy and needs a new surface.
The work will take place over a weekend so there is as little disruption as possible to nearby businesses and buses. The service 65A, provided by Community Connections, will run an alternative route on Saturday 2 September. Stagecoach will announce details of any diversions for the Sunday service 61 on their website at www.stagecoachbus.com
The work will be complete before children go back to school, so it will not disrupt the school run.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said, “This is an important scheme for Dursley and is part of our ongoing commitment to invest in our roads.
“We appreciate this work may cause some disruption however it is important we complete this before schools go back the following week. Thank you for you patience while we improve this main route through the town.”
Cllr Loraine Patrick, local county councillor for Dursley, said, “Please plan your journeys around Dursley on this weekend, as the closure may mean your journey takes a little longer than normal.”
Residents will know more convenient routes around the town, but the signed diversion will be suitable for all traffic including HGV’s.
