Night time resurfacing for A38 Bristol Road, Cam


As part of Gloucestershire County Council’s £150m investment into the county’s highways, the A38 Bristol Road in Cam will be resurfaced overnight from Friday 5th October.

The resurfacing will repair the section of the A38 Bristol Road that has reached the end of its life expectancy. There will be a full road closure overnight from Friday 5th October to Monday 22nd October.

To minimise disruption on this busy A road, work will take place between 7pm to 7am each night, except on the weekends. A diversion suitable for all type of vehicles will be in place. Highways crews will be resurfacing over 21,800m² of road with approximately 2,561 tonnes of material.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “We have scheduled this A38 route for resurfacing and these essential improvements will create a smooth pothole free journey for all road users. Keeping your highways in great condition is extremely important to us and we are continuing to make good on our £150 million investment plan for the county’s vital road network.”

From the northern extents of the scheme follow the A38 to the roundabout with the A419 and take the second exit in direction to Stroud. Continue along the A419 towards Stonehouse. At the Roundabout at Ryeford take the 3rd exit onto the A419 Ebley bypass. At the Roundabout at Dudbridge take the 1st exit and then at the 2nd Roundabout take the 3rd exit.
