Resurfacing upgrade on Down Hatherley Lane


A brand new surface will improve travel along popular route for commuters.

Work will take place from 18th-21st October, from the B4063 junction on Down Hatherley Lane to Park Farm Lane.

The road has reached the end of its life expectancy and is being resurfaced as part of the county council’s £150 million upgrade of Gloucestershire’s highways. It is narrow in parts and is a well used ‘cut through’ route linking the A38 with the B4063, and the resurfacing will help make driving safe and reduce potholes.

So that the work can go ahead, the road will be closed from 18th-21st October between 8.00am-5.30pm each day.

A diversion route is planned to be as short as possible, and will be signposted via Frogfurlong Lane and Innsworth Lane.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said: “We have scheduled this route for resurfacing as part of the county’s ongoing programme of improvements. Keeping the county moving continues to be a priority.”
