Gloucester South West Bypass (GSWB) - Llanthony Road Widening

The Llanthony Road section of the Gloucester South West Bypass (GSWB) is the only section of the A430 GSWB which has yet to be improved. The road is single carriageway which creates a bottleneck between Llanthony Road and St Anne Way.

The proposed scheme would see the widening of this stretch of the road, optimisation and refurbishment of traffic signals to maximise traffic flows, and improvements to the side road junctions to improve access for local residents and businesses.

Proposals also include improvement to pedestrian crossings as well as the widening of pedestrian and cycle facilities to link with those already in place at either end of this section of road.

The county council will need to acquire land to enable the widening to take place.

The scheme is included in the adopted Local Transport Plan (LTP) as a short term capital project delivery priority (2015 to 2021).
See Policy Document 4: Highways - Page 39.

Central government has confirmed through the Gloucestershire GFirst LEP Growth Deal an allocation of £2 million to upgrade the Gloucester South West bypass (GSWB). This funding is currently scheduled to be made available to GCC in financial year 2018/2019.
