Weekend resurfacing for Watermoor Road


Cirencester's Watermoor Lane and the junction where it meets Watermoor Road will be resurfaced this weekend.

More than 1,000 square metres of new road surface will be laid during the improvement work.

To keep everyone safe while the large machinery is on site, the road will need to close to traffic for two days on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November. 

The first part of the resurfacing work will take place on the Watermoor Road junction with Watermoor Lane on Saturday 26th when the road will be closed between 9am and 3pm.

Then on Sunday 27th the whole of Watermoor Lane will be closed for resurfacing between 7.30am and 5.30pm.

A signed diversion will be in place via Cricklade Street, Castle Street and the A419 Bristol Road and vice versa.

The road will be open each evening and overnight, and access will be maintained for pedestrians at all times.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, "To minimise disruption we've arranged for the resurfacing on Watermoor Road and the Watermoor Lane junction to be done in two parts this weekend.

"We continue our road improvements across the county, and right now we're working hard to get resurfacing work done before winter sets in."

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.
