Horton Road to be resurfaced

October 1, 2020 8:44 PM

The resurfacing of part of Horton Road in Gloucester will begin on October 6.

This is after a concerted campaign by the local Liberal Democrat county councillor Jeremy Hilton.

The planned work is to be carried out at night between October 6 and 13.

The road will be closed between 7pm to 7am during the weekdays. It will not be closed on weekends.

Councillor Jeremy Hilton, who represents Kingsholm & Wotton, said: "I have been pressing the county council to resurface Horton Road for a long time.

"I am disappointed that only the stretch from London Road to the exit of the Aspen Medical Centre is to be resurfaced.

"The stretch from here to Great Western Road also needs doing. This is now planned for the next financial year.

"There has been patching work, but Horton Road has needed a complete resurface.

"This road is used by a lot of traffic and it's breaking up in many places. The previous resurfacing wasn't good enough. I am hoping this time the work will include strengthening the foundations."
