Road Closure A429 at Stow on the Wold On 17-26 September 2018

There will be a FULL road closure on the A429 Fosse Way at Stow on the Wold from Monday 17th September through until Wednesday 26th September, which could affect those of you who commute and shop around Stow.

The closure is to allow contractors to install a new foul sewer into the existing main foul sewer within the A429. The road will be closed 24/7 as the excavation will be 2–3m deep and has to cross the A429 to the middle of the opposite carriageway. The actual connection will be taking place from Fourways Cottage (adjacent the Unicorn car park) across the Northbound carriageway to midway in the Southbound carriageway.

Gloucestershire County Council will also be taking advantage of the road closure to undertake additional carriageway works, so as to minimise any future disruptions and road closures.

Please find below a simple plan showing the basic North/South & East/West diversion routes. There will be a HGV route taking vehicles from the B4077 through to the A429 at Bourton on the Water, to avoid Lower Swell. Additional signs will be placed to deter traffic from using roads passing through local villages.


For more information about the works, please call Highways (Amey) on 08000 514 514.
