Essential resurfacing for the B4073 in Painswick


Highways crews will be in Painswick resurfacing the B4073 Pullens Road this week as part of our £150 million investment into the county’s roads.


The route is in need of essential resurfacing work as it has reached the end of its life.

Pullens Road will be closed for three days, from Thursday 5 September to Monday 9 September (excluding the weekend).

To help keep disruption to a minimum, work will take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

An official diversion route, suitable for all vehicles that normally use the closed road, will be signposted. Gloucester Street will be open in the direction of Gloucester as usual to help the flow of traffic.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “As part of the county council’s £150 million investment, we have identified the need to resurface this route to make journeys smoother for motorists and cyclists. I would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience while this work is carried out.”

Cllr Keith Rippington, local councillor for Bisley and Painswick, said: “This is a busy road so it is important we carry out this resurfacing work. I’d ask road users and the local community to bear with us and plan your journeys around it while it is taking place.”
