Don’t get caught out by the A38 evening closures! Gloucestershire Highways will be resurfacing the A38 between Waterwells and Cole Avenue on the evenings of Thursday 7th, Friday 8th and Monday 11th March. The road closes at 7pm and re-opens at 7am the following morning. See the full notice and map below.
This means that you will need to use the old Bristol Road through Quedgeley and Hardwicke between those hours. Note that all Kingsway traffic will have to access Kingsway via Waterwells Drive, so potentially a lot more traffic at Crosskeys and Waterwells.
The Full Notice
What: Road closure for carriageway resurfacing
Where: A38 Southern Connector – see attached for details of location
When: 7th to 11th March (excl. Sat and Sun nights) from 1900 to 0700
We will be resurfacing 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.
Our resurfacing 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 online schedule and our social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen. You can find the current scheme start and end dates and more information about this scheme on our:
