Cheltenham Roadworks

Major roadworks are planned to start this week in Cheltenham, in an attempt to repair potholes.

Gloucestershire County Council were planning to repair the roads in the next financial year, but due to the recent cold snap many roads have been severely damaged, so the work has been brought forward.

The Council plan to spend £130,000 on fixing damage on Ambrose Street and on High Street up to just past the junction with Henrietta Street, as well as improving the cycle lanes on the junction with Henrietta Street. In some places, the highways team may have to dig as deep as two feet as the damage is so bad.

While the closure of these roads will obviously cause some disruption, work is planned to start today and to last through the school half term, as there are usually less cars on the roads during this time.
