Overnight resurfacing on Swindon Road, Cheltenham


As part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150 million investment into your highways, crews will be resurfacing overnight on Swindon Road in Cheltenham between 1 and 3 September.


In total, the resurfacing will take three nights to complete; and the road will be closed between 7pm – 7am to help minimise disruption.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “I’m determined to deliver on our promise to invest £150 million into Gloucestershire’s roads in every area of our county. Swindon Road in Cheltenham will benefit from the new smooth road surface once work is complete. I’d like to thank residents and road users for their patience while we carry out this work.”

Cllr Bernard Fisher, county councillor for St Paul's and Swindon, said: “I’m pleased that part of Swindon Road is receiving much needed investment and attention from the council. I will continue to campaign for further resurfacing work to be carried out on the remainder of Swindon Road to ensure all road users can enjoy a safe and comfortable journey along this popular route into Cheltenham. I would like to thank the highways crews for working overnight to minimise the impact on the local community.”


What’s the diversion route?

Social distancing measures will be in place to help ensure our highways crews are safe at all times.
