A46 Closure

Posted on March 13th, by Parish Councillor in Parish Council, Roads and Utilities. 2 comments

The Parish Council has been informed by Gloucestershire County Council that the A46 will be closed to traffic due to resurfacing over an 8km section between the Calcott Manor crossroads and the county boundary located near the junction for Upper Kilcott.

The closure is planned between Wednesday 8th April to Tuesday 21st April 2015.  Please be aware that the Gloucestershire school holiday is between Monday 30th March and Friday 10th April.

A very long diversion will be in place taking traffic via Cirencester and Chippenham, although this is because the closure of an A road requires an A road diversion route.

The Temporary Closure Notice can be viewed via the following link.

  1. Fiona McCowan has managed to obtain this additional information from the project manager, which makes the proposed works more tolerable:

    The A46 will only be closed during the daytime ( 7.30am – 5pm approx.). Works are due to be carried out in sections from Calcot Crossroads to the County boundary and only the areas being worked on will be closed to through traffic. Side roads will be available for local traffic. It is not anticipated that work will take place during the weekends.

    I hope this is helpful.

  2. Today I enquired of Adrian whether it would be possible to be informed of progress, particularly regarding access across to Leighterton. Here is Adrian’s reply:

    Unfortunately it is very difficult to provide an accurate programme detailing the exact location of the works on a daily basis. Works have started at Calcot crossroads and are progressing southwards. The patch at the traffic lights is deeper than the rest so has taken longer to complete. From Monday next week we should make better progress along the road. It really is a case of watching progress ‘on the ground’ on a day-by-day basis and adjusting journeys accordingly.

    I’m afraid I am unable to be more specific than this.
