Kingsway and Quedgeley to benefit from the £150m highways investment
Gloucestershire County Council’s highways crews will resurface a major junction on the A38 south of Gloucester overnight for three nights from Thursday 7 March.
Following on from recent safety work on the nearby Greenhill Drive Bridge the busy A38 junction with a supermarket in Quedgeley will be resurfaced from Thursday 7 March to Monday 11 March to ensure the road remains fit for purpose for many years to come. Your highways crews will complete resurfacing over 2,500m² of the junction with approximately 300 tonnes of material.
To help keep disruption to a minimum, work will take place overnight from 7pm to 7am (excluding the weekend) and only one side of the carriageway will be closed at a time between Cole Avenue and Waterwells roundabout. Access to the supermarket in Quedgeley from the A38 will be affected however a sign posted diversion suitable for all type of vehicles will be in place. The closure will include part of the adjoining Kingsway road too for safety reasons, and residents can access the supermarket from the east via Newhaven Road or Woodvale.
Once work is underway further updates will be available via our social media channels and updated signs on site, and the junction will be open over the weekend.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, “We’re continuing to deliver on our promise to invest £150 million into Gloucestershire’s roads and this is yet another major resurfacing project on a well used stretch of road. The A38 is a popular route and therefore it’s great news that commuters and local residents of Kingsway and Quedgeley will benefit from the new smooth road surface once work is complete.
“By carrying out the resurfacing overnight we will keep disruption to a minimum. I’d like to thank road users and businesses for bearing with us while we carry out this essential work.”
