Overnight improvements for B4632 Cleeve Hill
Gloucestershire County Council will be resurfacing this key route into Cheltenham as part of our £150m investment into the county’s roads.
The popular road, which carries around 7,000 vehicles each day, will be resurfaced from Ashleigh Lane to the Rising Sun from 18th September to 24th September.
To keep disruption to a minimum, work will take place between 7pm – 7am (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights). Your highways crews will complete resurfacing over 5,395m² of road with approximately 650 tonnes of material.
The resurfacing follows on from the recent slip repair works. Back in June one hundred micropiles (12 metre long bars made from galvanised steel) were drilled into the ground to hold the road in place and stop it from slipping.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood said, “Keeping Gloucestershire moving is what our £150 million investment into roads is all about. This is another important scheme that will make much needed improvements to our road network. I’d like to reassure road users that we will keep disruption to a minimum and thank them for bearing with us.”
Cllr Roger Wilson, local county councillor for Winchcombe and Woodmancote said, “This is a popular route from Winchcombe into Cheltenham and the resurfacing will have a significant benefit to the local community. I’m really pleased to see the work is being done overnight to help minimise the inconvenience and ask that road users please bear with us while we carry out this essential work.”
What’s the diversion route?
From the southern road closure extents continue on the B4632 to Prestbury. At the roundabout, take the second exit and follow the road through Prestbury High Street and Deep Street. At the double mini roundabout turn onto the B4075 towards the Racecourse. Continue along the road to the Racecourse roundabout, then take the third exit onto A435. Follow the A435 via Bishops Cleeve, Oxenton and Teddington to Teddington Hands roundabout. At the roundabout take the forth exit onto the B4077 towards Toddington. At Toddington, at the roundabout with the B4632 take the third exit and continue along the B4632 through Winchcombe to the point of the closure. Diversion is the same in reverse.
Gloucestershire County Council is investing £150 million into our roads, effectively doubling the resurfacing programme over the next four years, to help keep your county moving – our biggest ever investment.
