Seymour Road benefits from the £150m highways investment


As part of the county council’s £150m investment in Gloucestershire’s roads; Seymour Road, Gloucester will be resurfaced from Tuesday 16 February.


Seymour Road is a popular and well used road for motorists in Gloucester and is subject to heavy wear and tear.

The road upgrade will mean a quicker, smoother and altogether more pleasant journey for all road users.

The resurfacing will take place from Tuesday 16 February to Monday 1 March between 9:30am – 3:30pm (excluding weekends).

An official diversion route, suitable for all vehicles will be signposted.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “I’d like to thank our crews for continuing to work through out lockdown ensuring we keep our £150 million promise to upgrade the county’s roads on track, whilst maintaining social distancing and following national guidance.

“We know investing in our roads is a top priority for the people of Gloucestershire and Seymour Road is a popular and busy route so it’s really important it stays in good condition. We appreciate this work is inconvenient; however it will be worth it once the work is complete. I would like to thank the local community for their patience and cooperation while this vital work is carried out.”
