New road surface for Wyman’s Lane, Cheltenham
Wyman’s Lane near Swindon Village is the latest of Cheltenham’s roads to benefit from the county council’s continued investment in Gloucestershire roads.
This is an important route connecting Cheltenham and Bishops Cleeve, and will mean a smoother, easier commute for road users.
Resurfacing will take place from 3rd to 10th April. So that this can be carried out safely, on weekdays a road closure will be in place from the mini-roundabout with Runnings Road up the full length of Wymans Lane to the junction with Church Road. The road will be open to traffic as usual over the weekend.
The county council works closely with local businesses and transport operators to keep things running as smoothly as possible during essential roadworks. Bus services may be subject to change; for further information please contact Stagecoach.
Access to Topps Tiles, just inside road closure, will be available throughout the works.
The diversion route suitable for heavy vehicles will be signposted: from the mini-roundabout at the south end of Wymans Lane, follow Runnings Road straight on into Manor Road. At the end of Manor Road turn right onto Church Road and follow along to the top of Wyman’s Lane, and vice versa.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said: “Another of the county’s important routes is to be given a fresh new start with full resurfacing work. This is one of 180 similar schemes this year, and with the extra money for roads in next year’s budget more improvements will be on the cards for our communities.”
Cllr Bernard Fisher, county councillor for St Paul's and Swindon said: “This is positive news for both local people and visitors to the area. I’m pleased this upgrade to the road surface will soon be underway.”
