Laying the groundwork for a smooth journey along busy Gloucester route


One of Gloucester’s busiest routes, the A430, is being improved as part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150 million promise to upgrade the county’s highways.

As part of the council’s ongoing commitment to Gloucestershire’s roads, the A430 between Bruton Way and Trier Way will undergo vital carriageway patching from 3rd April 2018.

The A430 is a key route connecting residents and businesses in Gloucester and is in need of significant carriageway patching to repair the defects in the road in preparation for a new surface layer to be applied later this summer.

To keep disruption to a minimum, the scheme will be carried out at night. Starting at 7pm on Tuesday 3rd April, crews will work overnight between 7pm and 7am until Wednesday 11th April (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights).

For the safety of road users and workforce, the road will be closed during our work hours. Access for residents will be maintained throughout.

“This important scheme highlights our continued investment to keep the county moving and these improvements will lay the groundwork for more vital work later this summer. I’d like to reassure residents that by carrying out this work overnight, we’ll minimise the disruption.”
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood

This scheme will be carried out in four sections and customised diversion routes will be sign posted for each individual section of the works.

Section 1 – Diversion will be via Bristol Rd, Clifton Road, B4072 Stroud Road and Park End Road.

Section 2 – Diversion will be via Bristol Rd, Clifton Road, B4072 Stroud Road,  A38 Finlay Road – A38 Eastern Avenue – B4073 Barton Road.

Section 3 – Diversion will be via B4073 Barton Street, A38 Eastern Avenue, A38 Barnwood Road and London Road.

Section 4 – Diversion will be via Metz Way, Eastern Avenue, Barnwood Road and London Road. All diversions are the same in reverse.
