Frocester Hill road closures for safety improvement work

MOST READ

Improvements are set to be carried out at Frocester Hill to improve safety and visibility at a junction.

The work, focussing on Frocester Hill and the junction with the B4066, will consist of new road markings and signs, in response to police collision records and concerns from the local community.

The signs will include reminders to motorists about the speed limit and to give way, as well as warnings over bends in the road to be aware of. Existing road markings, including centre lines and reminders to drivers to slow down, will also be refreshed to make them more visible and prominent.

There will be a road closure in place from 3 to 14 April from 7am to 7pm, excluding the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Due to the construction activities required and for the safety of road users and construction staff, it will be necessary to close the road to all users, including cyclists and pedestrians. Works will be carried out in sections to help maintain local access as much as possible.

An official diversion route will be in place that is suitable for all vehicles and you can view a map of it here:

Diversions will be in place during the closure of Frocester Hill.

The lining work is weather dependent so could be postponed at short notice.

Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member for road safety, said: “We are pleased to be able to carry out these improvements at Frocester Hill, in line with our commitment to improve road safety in Gloucestershire.

“I would like to thank residents for their patience during the road closure and apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.”
