Two damaged A-roads in Gloucestershire will be resurfaced despite to the coronavirus pandemic – but there are some which won’t.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced stricter measures last night (March 23) in an attempt to slow down the spread of covid-19, including allowing police to disperse gatherings of more than two people.
Planned resurfacing works of many torn-up roads will not go ahead as Gloucestershire County Council has cancelled or postponed them at short notice in light of the outbreak.
The authority said it will also no longer be dropping letters to homes at resurfacing sites.
The roads which won’t be resurfaced include Kingshill Lane in Dursley, Back Ends in Chipping Campden and Parton Road and Meadow Way in Churchdown.
The county council said it is working with its contractors to ensure as many planned schemes go ahead as possible, however it warned further works could be postponed.
