Drainage and road safety works coming to Hampton Street
Maintenance work is scheduled for the drainage network of Hampton Street, Tetbury from Monday 12 October.
Highway crews will be on site to install a new drainage system to allow surface water to drain more effectively, and improve driving conditions.
There will be a 24/7 closure in place on Hampton Street from Monday 12 to Sunday 25 October.
Alongside the drainage works highway crews will also install a new pedestrian island at the south end of Hampton Street (junction with A433 London Road) to improve road safety in the area.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “Work like this is a crucial part of our annual maintenance programme. By installing a new drainage system and making sure our drains and gulleys are clear, we can help to prevent surface flooding on our roads and maintain optimal driving conditions whatever the weather. I appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep everyone on the road safe it is necessary.”
Cllr Stephen Hirst, county councillor for Tetbury, said: “These essential improvements will improve road safety and future proof the area from surface flooding on our roads. I’d like to thank residents and road users for their patience while we carry out this important work.”
What’s the diversion route? (suitable for heavy goods vehicles)
The diversion is via the B4014 Tetbury Upton and Avening towards Nailsworth. At Nailsworth take the A46 Bath Road towards Bath. At the junction with the A4136 (Calcot Crossroads) turn left towards Tetbury. The diversion is the same in reverse.
Social distancing measures will be in place to help ensure our highways crews are safe at all times.
