New surface at night for Kingsditch Roundabout
Your highways crews will be resurfacing the Kingsditch Roundabout over night from Monday 13th August as part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150m investment into the county’s roads.
The A4019 Kingsditch Roundabout is a busy roundabout in Cheltenham and has reached the end of its life expectancy. The roundabout will be resurfaced overnight from Monday 13th to Wednesday 22nd August. To keep disruption to a minimum, work will take place 8pm - 7am (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights). The work follows on from the recent resurfacing on the A4019 Tewkesbury Road, Cheltenham.
Your highways crews will complete resurfacing over 5,105m² of road with approximately 600 tonnes of material. The roundabout closure will begin at 8pm each night in line with the closing times of most of the surrounding retail businesses.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: "We're laying a brand new surface on this popular Cheltenham roundabout which forms part of our £150 million investment to improve Gloucestershire’s roads. These resurfacing works will have a major benefit to local businesses and residents in Cheltenham. I would like to reassure residents that we will keep disruption to a minimum and I’d like to thank them for bearing with us.”
Cllr Bernard Fisher, county councillor for St Paul’s and Swindon, said: “Resurfacing the Kingsditch Roundabout is great news and will be a welcome boost to residents and businesses; helping support the local economy. I’m really pleased to see the work is being done overnight to help minimise the inconvenience. I would like to thank road users for their patience while the work is carried out.”
