Castle Lane Road Closure, 21st June 2017

3/224 Castle Lane, Moreton Valence – Amey Ref 22014729


What:                   Road closures for carriageway patching

Where:                 Castle lane – see attached for details of the exact location

When:                  21st June, mobile road closures from 0730 to 1730 daily


On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, Amey will shortly be patching sections of the carriageway at the above location to repair localised faults and improve the condition of the road.

To ensure the safety of road users and our workforce, it is necessary for us to close the road to through traffic while this work is being done because of the road width and machinery that will be used.

We will be patching in multiple locations along the stretch of road marked in red on the map attached.  Each area being patched will need its own localised road closure.  Although we can’t give exact times and locations for these localised closures, we will have a gateman at each end to manage access for residents when it is safe to do so.  There may be some short delays and your patience is appreciated.

This work is in advance of a surface dressing treatment being applied to the full site in the summer 2017.

Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation.  If you have any queries please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions leaflet delivered with this letter, or contact us on 08000 514514 or email

Hempstead Recycling Centre Five Day Closure

Five-day closure of Hempsted Household Recycling Centre in June

From 19 to 23 June, Hempsted Household Recycling Centre (HRC) in Gloucester will be closed to finish the work already underway to accommodate more traffic and reduce queues.

The changes will take effect after the June closure and are being made in response to customer feedback and increased use.

The temporary closure is necessary for the work to be completed safely, but the duration has been kept to a minimum.

Work includes extending the upper road area and creating a multiple lane system, as well as increasing the boundary size to accommodate heavy vehicles. The plans will also make it possible for a reuse shop to be added in the future.

Alternative recycling facilities are available at the HRCs at Fosse Cross, Wingmoor Farm, Oak Quarry and Pyke Quarry however residents may prefer to plan their visit before or after the closure dates to avoid potential queues at other sites.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this essential closure.
