Closure of Tewkesbury Road

Tewkesbury Road will be closed for carriageway resurfacing between 17th May and 14th June (not including weekends), with night works from 2000 to 0700 daily. To ensure the safety of road users and the workforce, it will be necessary to close the carriageway in one direction and then the other, because of the road width and machinery that will be used.

From 17th to 29th May and 13th to 14th June the northbound carriageway will be closed nightly (excluding weekends). Tesco customers to use Gloucester Road entrance and exit onto Tewkesbury Road southbound only.

From 30th May to 12th June the southbound carriageway will be closed nightly (excluding weekends).

When the northbound carriageway is closed, the southbound carriageway will be restricted to one lane only and vice versa. Temporary traffic lights will be used to manage access for businesses and residents that have no alternative access.

Access for vehicles in or out of the work area cannot be guaranteed except in emergencies. If you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the closure will be in place, please follow signed diversions.
