Plans for £35m road improvement scheme in Gloucestershire

A £35m programme of road improvements for Gloucestershire over the next year has been announced by the government.

Highways England said the main focus would be the repair of bridges over the M5 motorway between junctions 11 and 13.

Resurfacing of up to 114 miles (183 km) of the county's road network is also planned.

And waterproofing and resurfacing work is scheduled for a stretch of the A40 at Walham Viaduct.

Highways England's Andrew Page-Dove said the work being undertaken "represents a major investment in Gloucestershire's roads infrastructure".

He said delays and disruption should be kept to a minimum and full details of each road improvement scheme would be made public ahead of work beginning later in the summer.
