Road Closures for CarriageWay Patching, Upper Rissington – Updated

We have been informed about planned roadworks on a number of roads in Upper Rissington in the coming months: Sopwith Road, Farman Crescent, Hawker Square, Bleriot Road, Snipe Road, and Grebe Square.  A plan of the scheme is shown below.

These roads will be closed at some point between 1st April 2019 and the 30th September 2019, to allow contractors, working on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, to carry out carriageway surfacing works. Please note that the time allowed for completion of the scheme has been extended.

In addition, County Councillor Nigel Moor has agreed to allocate funding from the ‘Local Highways’ budget in the current financial year (by the end of March 2020) towards repairs of Wright Road, Wright Close and north Sopwith Road.

Notification of actual dates will be given on site at least a week before – and we will pass along details when available.

Help With A Research Project Into Food Waste Disposal

Research students from the University of Sheffield are conducting a short door-to-door survey in relation to food waste disposers in Upper Rissington. The interview team will be on site during the evenings from Monday 10th June to Wednesday 12th June and it would be very helpful if residents could spare five minutes to participate in the survey. The data will be used to support the water-flow modelling of the new sewer network and no personal information will be collected.
