Spine Road East, Cirencester

What:         Road closure for carriageway resurfacing

Where:       Spine Road East – see overleaf for details of location

We will be resurfacing the road at the above location as part of our promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.


We are planning to work on roads near you week commencing 4th February and we anticipate we will be working for 9 days (excl. weekends) from 0700 to 1900. However, our resurfacing programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, changes in temperatures and other weather events as well as plant breakdown and unforeseen technical issues that arise once work has begun.

All this means scheme dates and details can change at short notice.

We appreciate this is inconvenient, and we will keep our online schedule and our social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen. You can find more information about this scheme on our:
