Essential upgrade ahead for Greenway Lane, Charlton Kings
A popular route between Charlton Kings and Prestbury is soon to undergo vital resurfacing work.
Greenway Lane is being resurfaced as part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150 million promise to upgrade the county’s highways.
As part of the ongoing commitment to the county’s roads, Greenway Lane will be resurfaced from Monday 19th February to Friday 23rd February 2018. Daytime road closures will be in place between 07:30 and 17:30.
Wales and West Utilities are performing an upgrade to the gas main on Greenway Lane the previous week, during school half term. We will be resurfacing the road immediately after the gas works are completed, to minimise disruption to the area.
Cllr Matt Babbage, county councillor for Battledown and Charlton Kings, said: “Greenway Lane is an important route for local residents and commuters, so it is vital for this resurfacing to go ahead. I would like to thank residents in advance for their cooperation while the work is carried out.”
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “Investing in our roads helps keep the county moving forward. This work will mean a smooth and pothole free drive for residents and commuters who rely on this route.”
Letters have gone out to residents along the route with details about local access arrangements.
Advance warning signs are already on display and a diversion will be in place once work starts. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the scheme.
When approaching from the south follow diversion along the A40 (London Road) towards Cheltenham town centre. At the junction with the B4075 (Hales Road) turn right and follow diversion along the B4075 until you reach a double roundabout at the junction with Hewlett Road. On the roundabout, take the second exit. On the next roundabout, take the second exit to Harp Hill. Follow the road and at the junction with Greenway Lane turn right. The route is the same in reverse.
