On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, we will shortly be patching sections of carriageway at the above location to repair localised faults and improve the condition of the road.

Our patching programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, changes in temperatures and other weather events as well as plant breakdown and unforeseen technical issues that arise once work has begun. All this means scheme dates and details can change at short notice. We appreciate this is inconvenient, and we will keep our social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen.

ROAD CLOSUREWe will be patching the road at the above location as part of our promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

We will be patching in multiple locations along the stretch of road marked in red on the map overleaf.

We appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and the team working on the road safe it is necessary. We have planned the work so we can be in and out as quickly as possible.


In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, we are not permitted to allow any person or vehicle to proceed along the closed roads; with the exception of pedestrian access to properties, emergency vehicles, and statutory undertakers responding to an emergency situation.

Therefore, if you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the road closure is in place, we ask you to please make alternative arrangements.


In exceptional circumstances, some level of access may be considered. This will be on a case by case basis and only where and when it is safe and practical to do so and provided the traffic management personnel are approached calmly and courteously with a reasonable request; however access cannot be guaranteed or demanded at any time. Any access during this time would be at the drivers own risk as it is a works site and may have raised iron works or a temporary surface.


We have created an official diversion route which will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road. We appreciate you may know an alternative route, however please be aware alternative routes which are outside of the road closure area are used at driver’s discretion.

This work is in advance of a surface dressing treatment being applied to the full site in summer 2021.
