Over the weekend we had a letter posted through our door from Gloucestershire Highways. They are going to be undertaking works on the A38 to resurface the northbound carriageway from the Waterwells roundabout to Cole Avenue. I’m sure many of you will agree that it’s about time, this section of the road is very poor in comparison to the southbound carriageway, and any traffic driving on it generates a lot of noise disturbing residents on both sides of the A38.
They say that they are aiming to carry out the work on Sundays and nights. They are starting on Sunday 8th July at 8am, and will work until 11pm. They will then work nights Monday – Friday from 7pm – 6am, planning to complete the works on Sunday 15th July. The road will be open outside of these hours when traffic will be controlled using lane closures.
They go on to talk about the noise that these roadworks will cause, with the noisiest work (eg using rotary planers, saw cutters and hand breakers) being carried out on the Sunday and in the evenings until 11pm. “Operations between 11pm and 6am will be undertaken as quietly as possible, but residents should be aware that there will still be noise associated with the works during this period. However every effort will be made to keep this to an absolute minimum.”
Any queries should be directed to Gloucestershire Highways on 08000 514514
Lets hope we can all get some sleep that week!
