Temporary Traffic Order to close the road for carriageway resurfacing

High Street, Kempsford

November 2021
Temporary Traffic Order to close the road for carriageway resurfacing


What: Temporary Traffic Order to close the road for carriageway resurfacing

Where: 3/171 High Street, Kempsford. See overleaf for details of road closure.

When: For approximately 6 Days (excl. weekends) between the hours of 09:30 to 15:30

The PLANNED start and end dates are currently Thursday 4th November to Thursday 11th November, however keep an eye on the web page detailed below or the signs on site for any short notice changes.

Our resurfacing programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, changes in temperatures and other weather events as well as plant breakdown and unforeseen technical issues that arise once work has begun. All this means scheme dates and details can change at short notice. We appreciate this is inconvenient, and we will keep our online schedule and our social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen.

Find the most up to date scheme start and end dates and more information about this scheme via our:

- Website – www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/resurfacing

- Signs in the area

You can also check for any updates on our website or our social media platforms.

If you do not have access to the internet or social media you may wish to ask friends or neighbours to help you access our website. If you know of neighbours who cannot access our website, please share this information with them.

ROAD CLOSURE

We will be resurfacing the road at the above location as part of our promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

Due to the type of engineering activities required with carriageway resurfacing, the road closure can cover an area greater than the area being resurfaced. This is to allow activities, such as movement and placement of machinery and material.

We appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and the team working on the road safe it is necessary. We have planned the work so we can be in and out as quickly as possible and have tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience.

ACCESS

In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, we are not permitted to allow any person or vehicle to proceed along the closed roads; with the exception of pedestrian access to properties, emergency vehicles, and statutory undertakers responding to an emergency situation.

Therefore, if you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the road closure is in place, we ask you to please make alternative arrangements.

In exceptional circumstances, some level of access may be considered. This will be on a case by case basis and only where it doesn’t impact on our ability to carry out the work and where it is safe to do so. Any access during this time would be at the drivers own risk as it is a works site and may have raised iron works or a temporary surface.

DIVERSIONS

We have created an official diversion route which will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road. We appreciate you may know an alternative route, however please be aware alternative routes which are outside of the road closure area are used at driver’s discretion.

Contact Us

- Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. If you have any queries please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions leaflet delivered with this letter, visit our web site www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/resurfacing Or email us at highways@gloucestershire.gov.uk

Below is a map showing the extents of the road closure.
