Which central Gloucester street is set to benefit from a little TLC?

 

Resurfacing makeover happening this month.

Northgate Street in Gloucester city centre is being spruced up with a brand new road surface.

Work is being carried out on the section of road from Debenhams to Wilko.

The job will take just five days, but will mean a smooth and fault-free road surface for years to come, making life easier for delivery drivers, taxis and shoppers.

So that work can go ahead, the road will be closed between 9.30am-3.30pm from 18th – 22nd September.This means there will be no vehicular access to The Oxebode, St Aldgate Street and Hare Lane as well as the works area on Northgate Street during the closure hours.  Affected businesses are being contacted so that they can arrange deliveries outside of these times, but otherwise it will be business as usual.

The road closure will avoid peak traffic times to minimise disruption as much as possible.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways and flood, said: “This resurfacing will help keep the city centre an attractive and well maintained place to shop, work and visit. Our aim is to show that Gloucester is open for business and an area to be proud of.”

Cllr Pam Tracey, county councillor for Hempsted and Westgate said: “This work is great news for local businesses and shoppers alike – there’s a lot of regeneration happening here in central Gloucester, and it’s good to see that Northgate Street is now set to benefit from a little TLC.”
