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.

6th June update - the road closure has been extended to 12th June. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

With the A4173 improvement scheme in its final stages, we are preparing to resurface the A46 (Stroud to Pitchcombe) to improve safety and road conditions.

Work will take 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 will see 19,976m² of the road resurfaced with 2,538 tonnes of hard-wearing asphalt with high skid resistance. Crews will also make improvements to signage and road lining.

The junction of the A46 and A4173 will not be resurfaced as part of the scheme, as this will be done later in the year as part of a junction improvement scheme.

You can follow our progress on the A46 on Twitter @Glosroads or Facebook @GloucestershireRoads. 

LOCAL ACCESS: Extended road closures will be in place in order to manage through traffic. Our gatemen will provide access in and out of the extended closure area but there will be no access via the A46 works area except in emergencies.
