A417 Missing Link - what do you think? Consultation begins

posted 15 Feb 2018, 07:06 by Robert Cowley

On 15th February Highways England launched a consultation into route options for the A417 ‘Missing Link’. The public consultation will run until 29 March 2018 and the council wants you to get involved.

There are a number of events taking place in the county, where information will be available along with an opportunity to speak to Highways England representatives about the project and the consultation.

You will be able to have your say on the two route options shortlisted by Highways England. To make sure as many people as possible have the chance to give their views, Gloucestershire County Council is supporting the consultation by hosting information points in some libraries and at Shire Hall.

This is a very important stage of the project to fix the A417 ‘Missing Link’ and although we need to keep the pressure on to make sure things continue to move forward, this is a key stage of the process to make sure the campaign becomes a reality.

More information on the campaign can be found at

Spine Road B4696

posted 18 Dec 2017, 02:45 by Robert Cowley

Following the Parish Council’s letter to Highways and others about various safety issues along the Spine Road, a response has been received from Highways, which was regarded as wholly inadequate.  This will be published shortly along with the Parish Council's response.  The assertion that the 40mph speed limit is only needed from the A419 to the Station Road junction and not to the county boundary as this second section of the Spine Road has different usage was regarded as completely wrong.  The Parish Council will continue to press for a 40mph speed limit along the full length of the Spine Road in Gloucestershire, along with other safety improvements. 

Also the recent work carried out by Amey’s contractor is not up to the required standard and will be re-done at Amey’s expense very shortly.
