B4063 London Road and Cheltenham Road Area, Gloucester


In 2020, Gloucestershire County Council secured £1.1 million of EATF (Emergency Active Travel Fund) to start the first phase of the B4063, Cheltenham to Gloucester cycle route. Gloucestershire County Council installed upgraded pedestrian and cycle facilities along London Road, Cheltenham Road and sections of Estcourt Road in Gloucester, to support social distancing measures, and to build upon the increase in walking and cycling seen across the county.

As part of the Government’s response to Covid-19 and to encourage alternative, healthier and sustainable modes of transport for local travel, Gloucestershire County Council focused on delivering schemes which would assist with the county’s economic recovery, and offer greener travel choices that would make it easier for both residents and visitors to access city centre jobs, services, education, shopping and visitor attractions.

To meet the ambitions set by Government to support the county through the challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, this cycle scheme was rapidly developed and installed under temporary traffic regulations specifically brought in to respond to and help counter the effects of Coronavirus. This scheme was aimed at encouraging and supporting walking and cycling trips into the city and around surrounding areas.

These temporary restrictions now need to go through a consultation process and we want to hear from you.

Proposals

It is proposed to:

  • Revoke the Bus Lane along the B4063 Cheltenham Road, Gloucester; and
  • Permanently introduce various waiting restrictions along B4063 London Road, B4063 Cheltenham Road, Heathville Road, Denmark Road, Claremont Road, Oxford Street and Hyde Lane, Gloucester; and
  • Permanently introduce a mandatory cycle lane along the B4063 London Road and Cheltenham Road, Gloucester.
