New surface at night for St Barnabas Roundabout
Highways crews will be resurfacing the A38 St Barnabas Roundabout, Gloucester overnight between 9 and 16 March as part of the county council’s £150m investment in Gloucestershire’s roads.
St Barnabas Roundabout, and the four roads located off the roundabout, Cole Avenue, Stroud Road, Finlay Road and Reservoir Road will be closed.
To help minimise disruption, the work will take place overnight between 7pm – 7am (excluding weekends).
On the first night (9 March) crews will be carrying out kerbing works, with the resurfacing works taking place from 10 March.
In total the scheme will take six nights to complete.
An official diversion route, suitable for all vehicles will be signposted.
Your highways crews will complete vital resurfacing works along the 2,518 square metres stretch of road with 296 tonnes of material.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said: “We’re laying a new surface on this popular Gloucester roundabout which forms part of our £150 million investment to improve Gloucestershire’s roads. These resurfacing works will have a major benefit to local businesses and residents in Gloucester. I would like to reassure road users that we will keep disruption to a minimum, and I’d like to thank them for bearing with us.”
Cllr Andrew Miller, county councillor for Tuffley, said: “Resurfacing St Barnabas Roundabout is great news and will be a welcome boost to residents and businesses; helping support the local economy. I’m really pleased to see the work is being done overnight to help minimise the inconvenience. I would like to thank the local community for their patience while the work is carried out.”
