Consultation Launches for A417 “Missing Link” Designs

Highways England has today (Tuesday 13 October 2020) launched a consultation on its updated designs for the ‘A417 Missing Link’.
The planned upgrade of the A417, a key route linking the South West and Midlands, will see a single lane stretch of carriageway between the Brockworth bypass and Cowley roundabout in Gloucestershire, upgraded to dual carriageway.  

One of the best ways to find out more about the proposals and have your say is to visit Highways England’s online exhibition. You can access this via – there are dedicated times when you can chat or video call with members of the project team who’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

If you do not have access to the internet or experience problems downloading the consultation materials, Highways England can send free of charge one printed copy of documents including the consultation booklet, feedback questionnaire, and a Freepost return envelope to your home, which are available on request by calling 0300 123 5000 or emailing
