Newsletter #6 from highways contractors at Crosskeys Roundabout.
Progress since 4th July
During the last two weeks we have continued to work near the retaining wall along the A38 approach from the M5 (previously the B4008) to install the surface of the new widened carriageway. We have also filled the footway ready for the surface course to be applied once the fencing along the top of the retaining wall is complete.
Works have continued in the verge between the A38 approach to Cross Keys Roundabout from Whitminster/Stroud and the A38 towards Gloucester from Cross Keys Roundabout, with drainage being installed and construction of the new widened carriageway started, with the barriers remaining in place for crew safety.
We have also completed the surfacing works in the verge near the old Cross Keys Pub with a widened carriageway on Bristol Road approach to Cross Keys Roundabout.
We have some night-time works to install duct crossings during the week commencing 22nd July. To keep our crews safe during these works we will need to close roads, details for which can be found below.
