Current road closures


Please refresh this page to see the latest closures.

Updated 15:55 Wednesday 24 February 2021

A number of roads around the county have been affected by heavy rainfall. The following list shows those that are closed, impassable or passable with care.

After a flood, we need to inspect the road to make sure it is still safe to travel on. Road closures remain in place until this inspection is done, so please do not move signs. Even if the road looks clear or passable, it might not be safe. We need to check the surface, clear up any debris and grit if needed. Road closures are in place to keep you and your vehicle safe.

West Area

  • B4234 Lower Lydbrook - Road Closed due to flooding

Northern Area

  • Ham Road, Tirley- Road Closed due to flooding
