Innsworth Gateway Project – find out more!

Anyone wanting to know more about the new roundabout on the A40 Gloucester Northern Bypass between Elmbridge and Longford is welcome to attend two drop-in sessions being run this week.

The Innsworth Gateway Project was introduced to support housing development at Innsworth. A key element of the project is also an upgrade Longford Roundabout, increasing its capacity to accommodate predicted future traffic flows and helping to relieve existing congestion.

The drop-in sessions will take place on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 November, between 3.30pm and 7.30pm, at the Oxstalls Sports Park. They will include:

  • Sketches of the designs
  • Funding information
  • A description of the build proposal
  • An indication of the timing and duration of build

At the event, members of the public will have the opportunity to review the proposed improvements to the A40 and ask questions.

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s lead member for built environment, Councillor Mel Gore, said: “It’s incredibly important that those who currently live in and around Innsworth, those who would like would like to live in the area, or those who simply pass through, take the time to drop-in to these sessions to find out more about potential issues that could affect them. I would highly recommend going along to ask questions and get informed, accurate answers from the experts.”
