Night time closures at Bullo as repairs continue on the A48


To minimise traffic disruption Gloucestershire County Council has planned night time working when the A48 is resurfaced at Bullo later this month.

Following years of heavy use, the surface of A48 is in need of repair.

From Thursday 23rd to Tuesday 28th June more than 1100 tonnes of new material will be laid on the Bullo stretch of this popular route through Gloucestershire.

Night time working will take place around the Bullo junction from 7pm to 7.30am.

A signed diversion will in place via Elton Corner, Littledean, Speech House, Parkend and Lydney, however local traffic may know of shorter routes.

The road will be open at all other times so traffic will not be affected during the daytime or at weekends.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways said, "We want to keep traffic disruption to a minimum while we continue our repairs along the A48 in the Forest of Dean. When we resurface the section at Bullo we'll be working overnight.

"The A48 is an important route for thousands of commuters and businesses, and when the new surface is complete it's expected to last for more than 20 years."

Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles.

The county council's highway crews work around the clock every day of the year to keep Gloucestershire safe and moving. Anyone on Twitter can follow @GlosRoads to find out what is being worked on at the moment and look out for the hashtag #highways365 for the latest updates.
