Elton Road to be closed for repair work


Work will begin next week to carry out repairs on the A4151.

Highway crews will carry out the work on between Monday 14th and Wednesday 16th November.

For the safety of the travelling public and the staff on site, it will be necessary to close the road to traffic during off- peak times, from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day.

The road will be open at evenings and over the weekend.

The road closure will be in place from the junction with the A48 at Elton Corner up to the junction for Elton Farm.

Access will be maintained for pedestrians and emergency vehicles.

The diversion from the north will be via the A40, the A4136, the A4151, the B4227 Forest Vale Road, the B4226 St Whites Road and the A4151 Elton Road.

The diversion from the south will be via the A48 and then Lydney High Street, the B4234 Forest Road, Fancy Road, Speech House Road, the B4226 Cinderford Road and the A4151 Elton Road.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, "Each day we'll start our repair work after the morning rush hour, and finish before the evening rush hour, so that commuter traffic won't be delayed too much. I'd like to thank people in advance for their patience while we get the road improvements done."

Cllr Brian Robinson, local county councillor for Mitcheldean said, "I welcome this work which will bring a much better surface to Elton Road. I ask anyone who needs to travel during the road closure to allow extra time for their journey.

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.
