Resurfacing planned for Bath Parade, Cheltenham


Bath Parade in Cheltenham is set to be resurfaced this week as part of the county council’s £150 million investment in Gloucestershire’s roads.


It will be closed for three days from Thursday 12 November to Monday 16 November (excluding the weekend), from 7am to 7pm, while highways crews replace the surface.

An official diversion route will be in place, which will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the road. You can view the diversion map here.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “We are committed to replacing well-worn surfaces like this as part of our £150 million investment. We know the work will be inconvenient but it is essential to make our roads safer and to create pothole-free journeys.”

Cllr Klara Sudbury, county councillor for Charlton Park and College, said: “This essential work will make journeys smoother and more pleasant for all road users. I appreciate everyone’s patience while the work is carried out.”

Social distancing measures will be in place to help ensure highways crews are safe at all times.
