Work has started at Arle Court roundabout. Future road closures and traffic management arrangements are available on this page.
Arle Court Park and Ride is still open. Transport providers, Stagecoach and Pulhams, are keeping their buses clean and safe during the pandemic. Find out more about this online park and ride page.
In February 2017, Government announced a Growth Deal 3 allocation of £22M via GFirst Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for infrastructure. This was to accelerate the release of employment land to house the Cheltenham Cyber Business Park.
In line with the Gloucestershire 2050 Vision, growing our economy presents the opportunity for Gloucestershire to be a ‘magnet’ county. This means growing the working age population by keeping and attracting more 18-40 year olds with high level qualifications who want to live and work in the county.
Cheltenham is a key driver for the economic prosperity of Gloucestershire, as well as the wider South West region. The county council is highly supportive of the emerging Cyber Park proposal.
The Cyber Park proposal includes 45 hectares of much needed employment land, focused on cyber industries generating new high skilled jobs, together with facilitating the delivery of the GCHQ Cyber Innovation Centre.
Traffic congestion already exists to the west of Cheltenham however, and this needs to be addressed through appropriate, sustainable transport improvement measures. These measures will assist with the delivery of the Cyber Business Park in the future.
