See map at bottom of this update.

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

We will be patching in multiple locations along the stretch of road marked in red on the map overleaf 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 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 and have
tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience.
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 it doesn’t impact on our ability to carry out the work and where it is safe to do so. 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 the summer 2020.
