Cross Keys Roundabout Improvements


About the Scheme

The Cross Keys Roundabout is on the A38, 800m north of junction 12 of the M5 motorway. It links directly to Gloucester for vehicles approaching from the motorway and from the A38. The junction is strategically important for Gloucestershire and these improvements will mean more vehicles can use it.

Gloucestershire County Council has been awarded £2.7 million funding from central government for the much needed improvements to the Cross Keys roundabout at the junction of the A38 and B4008 on the outskirts of Gloucester.

The government investment, which was announced in October 2017 by the Department for Transport, will be provided through the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF). Some of the work it will support includes widening the approach lanes of the roundabout and enhancing conditions for buses and cyclists.

The NPIF award will go a long way towards funding the scheme that, in total, is expected to cost £3.851m. The remaining money will be made up of section 106 funding, developer contributions and the county’s highways budget. 

We have awarded the contract for this scheme to Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd.

Work will begin on 13 May, and crews will be working off peak to minimise disruption to residents, businesses and commuters. Off peak working hours are Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm, along with evening and overnight working patterns as needed.

The current programme:

  • Construction Start - 13 May 2019
  • Construction End - October 2019


Road Closure Information

Information on upcoming road closures and traffic management will be posted here.

Narrow lanes have been introduced approaching the roundabout, this is essential to protect the safety of the workforce.  Please take extra care when approaching the roundabout and consider other road users such as Lorries and Heavy Goods Vehicles, who are less able to manoeuvre.
