Motorists thanked in advance for their patience during Benhall survey


Gloucestershire County Council will carry out survey work this month for the proposed A40 Benhall bus lane scheme.

The information being gathered during the survey will help the council and Stagecoach determine whether there is a business case for a bus lane aimed at reducing traffic queues leaving Cheltenham town centre.

The work, which will begin on Monday 11th January, will see a combination of CCTV, ground penetrating radar, trial holes and duct surveys on the highway, on the central reservation and on the verge.

While some lanes will need to be closed at certain times, the road will remain fully open throughout.

Regular commuters are asked to allow extra time for their journeys until the survey finishes on Wednesday 27th January.

Cllr Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member responsible for transport said, "I'd like to thank the travelling public in advance for their patience while the survey work is carried out on A40 at Benhall.

"This is important investigation work which will inform the business case for a new bus lane heading west out of Cheltenham."
