Safety improvements planned at Frocester Hill

Improvements are set to be carried out at Frocester Hill to improve safety and visibility at a junction.

The work, focussing on Frocester Hill and the junction with the B4066, will consist of new road markings and signs, in response to police collision records and concerns from the local community.

The signs will include reminders to motorists about the speed limit and to give way, as well as warnings about bends in the road to be aware of. Existing road markings, including centre lines and reminders to drivers to slow down, will also be refreshed to make them more visible and prominent.

There will be a road closure in place from 3 to 14 April from 7 am to 7 pm, excluding the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Due to the construction activities required and for the safety of road users and construction staff, it will be necessary to close the road to all users, including cyclists and pedestrians. Works will be carried out in sections to help maintain local access as much as possible.

An official diversion route will be in place that is suitable for all vehicles and you can view a map of it here.

The lining work is weather dependent so could be postponed at short notice.

Cllr Dave Norman, the cabinet member for road safety, said: “We are pleased to be able to carry out these improvements at Frocester Hill, in line with our commitment to improving road safety in Gloucestershire.

“I would like to thank residents for their patience during the road closure and apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.”
