New look for Gloucester's Park End Road


A busy traffic route near Gloucester Park will be resurfaced from 30th October – 3rd November.

The well used road in Barton is in need of a make-over. Later this month, crews will work between 7.30am-5.30pm from 30th October to 3rd November 17 to give it a brand new surface and lease of life.

So that work can go ahead safely, the road will be closed during the hours of works. The diversion route will be via Trier Way and Stroud Road.

The team will return the following week to re-install speed humps. This second phase of work will be completed using temporary traffic lights instead of a road closure, and will take place on 6th, 7th and 8th November between 9:30am and 3:30pm. 

The popular road is used by many residents and several businesses, all of which will benefit from its upgrade.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “Park End Road is home to a large number of residents as well as being a popular route on the outskirts of the city. This resurfacing is part of a wider plan to keep the county moving with £150 million worth of investment in local highways.”

Cllr Sajid Patel, county councillor for Barton and Tredworth said: “This is an important route for Barton and Tredworth, so I’m delighted that the road will benefit from a complete refresh and new road humps. I would like to thank residents for their patience while the work is carried out.”
