A46 Stroud to Pitchcombe Resurfacing

Major road improvements continues on the A46 between Stroud and Pitchcombe as part of the £150 million investment into county's highways.

The A46 (Stroud to Pitchcombe) has been resurfaced to improve safety and road conditions, as part of the A4173 Improvement Scheme.


Works took place from Friday 25th May to Tuesday 12th June with a road closure in place each night from 7pm to 7am (excluding Saturday and Sunday nights).  

Overall, the scheme has seen 19,976m² of the road resurfaced with 2,538 tonnes of hard-wearing asphalt with high skid resistance. Additionally, improvements have been made to signage and road lining.

The junction of the A46 and A4173 will be resurfaced in a later phase of the A4173 scheme, as part of a junction improvement scheme. More information on the Pitchcombe Junction improvements can be found here.
