Overnight resurfacing on London Road, Cirencester


As part of the county council’s £150million investment in Gloucestershire’s roads, the A417 London Road in Cirencester will be resurfaced overnight from Friday 30 October.


The council’s continued commitment to improving Gloucestershire’s roads means the A417 London Road in Cirencester will be resurfaced due to it reaching the end of its life expectancy.

The road will be closed for five nights from Friday 30 October to Wednesday 4 November; with minor completion works taking place on Saturday 7 November.

Every effort is being taken to minimise disruption. The resurfacing will take place between 7pm to 7am (excluding weekends), so the road will still be open during peak times.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “We have scheduled this route for resurfacing as part of the council’s ongoing £150 million investment. These essential improvements will create a smooth and pothole-free journey for all road users and by doing it overnight we’ll minimise the disruption.”

Cllr Nigel Robbins, county councillor for Cirencester Beeches, said: “This is a busy and popular route, so it is important we carry out this resurfacing work. I would like to thank road users for their patience while this work is carried out.”


What’s the diversion route?

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