Reinforcing the route between Berkeley & Sharpness Docks

Berkeley bypass (B4066) will undergo essential patching works on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council from 9th April 2018.

Crews will complete essential patching along the 2.65km stretch of road with over 200 tonnes of material.

To keep disruption to a minimum work will take place at night. Starting at 7pm on Monday 9th April, crews will work overnight between 7pm and 7am until Friday 13th April. More »

To minimise disruption to the businesses in and around the docks, the scheme is being delivered in two phases. There is no diversion available for the first phase due to the location of the works. The second phase will have a diversion in place suitable for vehicles less than 3.8m high due to low bridges.

9th - 11th April - no diversion available

12th-13th April - diversion via Newtown, height limit of 3.8m due to low bridges.

This scheme will be followed by resurfacing works later in April on the A4066 at Berkeley Heath (A38 to Canonbury Street roundabout). This scheme will also be delivered at night to minimise disruption. » Less
