2 Way TrafficLights at Meadow Way

November 6, 2023

Gloucestershire County Council will be conducting road patching on 22nd November at a section of Meadow Way to repair localised faults and improve the condition of the road. The patching programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, snow, 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. They appreciate road works 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. To ensure the safety of pedestrians, road users and workforce no vehicular access will be permitted on the section of the road being worked on at a time. The crew may allow essential access (i.e. medical appointment) in and out of the closure area, when it is safe to do so, but they need periods without vehicles to get the actual scheme done. For this reason, we ask you to limit any vehicular movement to a minimum. Please plan your essential journeys ahead and allow plenty of time. Please note that parking on the road (as marked red on the map) will be prohibited during the works. Workers will make every effort to contact the owners of any vehicles left parked on road, but if unsuccessful, they may have to arrange for them to be removed to a secure area until collected by owners. Off-road parking will be unaffected. These works are in place to improve the condition of the road, which you will benefit from, so your co-operation would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. If you have any queries, please email Highways@gloucestershire.gov.uk.‍
