Brand new surface for Cirencester's Wilkinson Road


The busy route into the Love Lane industrial estate area of Cirencester will be resurfaced next month.

The work to lay 2021 square metres of new road surface will take place from Monday 5th to Wednesday 7th December.

Due to the number of businesses operating along Wilkinson Road, the work will take place at night times from 7pm to 7am and it will be necessary to close the road to traffic from the roundabout at Love Lane up to the end of the Wilkinson Road industrial area.

A signed diversion will be in place via Love Lane, Chesterton Lane, Somerford Road and back to Wilkinson Road, and vice versa.

Access will be kept open for pedestrians.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, "To minimise any disruption for local businesses we're going to resurface Wilkinson Road at night times.

"We'll be laying around 490 tonnes of asphalt to improve the overall surface of the road and I'd like to thank local people for their patience while we get the job done."

Cllr Joe Harris, local county councillor for Cirencester Park said, "Wilkinson Road is the main route into the Love Lane industrial estate and many of the roads here are in need of attention. This resurfacing is great news and will be a welcome boost to residents and businesses and help support the local economy."

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.
