Notices

Emergency Road Closure Notification.

GCC have notified Parish Councils that road patching work is going to be undertaken on many of the County’s roads ahead of the Tour of Britain Women’s cycling event. This may require road closures or traffic disruption, and an emergency road closure notice has been issued. The works will be undertaken on a rolling basis, starting on 12 Mar 22 and lasting for up to 21 days. The whole of the A48 through Minsterworth is included within the programme, though the scheduled timings are not yet known. A copy of the traffic order from GCC can be viewed here.
