Road Closure Warning – Ash Dieback Wednesday 21st July onwards

On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, Gloucestershire Highways are working in joint partnership with the adjoining landowner National Trust and will shortly be carrying out essential works at the above location in order to remove unsafe trees infected with Ash Dieback.

Ash Dieback disease causes Ash trees to become unsafe, and the tree could shed limbs or collapse on to the road causing harm and injury. This work must take place for health and safety reasons, to protect road users and pedestrians, and make sure the carriageway remains clear of debris.

The work will take place Wednesday 21st July 2021 to Tuesday 3rd August 2021 (excluding weekends), from 07.00 to 19.00 daily
