AN UPDATE has been issued as work to resurface London Road in Stroud nears its end. 

Closures have been in place on the A419 London Road, which is pitted with large potholes, for almost a month while a stretch has been resurfaced.

The closures have been in place between the Bowbridge crossroads and Cowcombe Hill for around 26 nights between 7pm and 7am, excluding weekends.

Work started on Tuesday, September 12 and was due to be completed on Tuesday, October 17, although due to adverse weather conditions, they are now due to end on Thursday, October 19. 

A Gloucestershire County Council spokesperson said: “As part of our investment of over £100 million in the county’s roads, we have been resurfacing London Road in Stroud. It is our longest and biggest single investment into one road this financial year and is just one out of 170 roads that are being resurfaced this year. 

"The resurfacing will greatly improve the road surface so all road users can enjoy smoother and safer journeys.

“Due to adverse weather conditions during the works, it is now scheduled to be completed on Thursday, October 19. 

"We would like to thank residents for their patience while these works have been carried out.”
