Re-open the old A40

The old A40 runs between the A40 at Puesdown and the Old Prison at Northleach and has been well used by local people as an alternative route to Northleach and to villages such as Yanworth and Compton Abdale. It was closed in 2015 as a result of a wall collapsing and the ground subsiding. 

Whilst we all understand that it takes time to investigate and remedy a situation, Paul Hodgkinson believes that enough is enough and that County Council highways bosses must now act and provide a timetable for the road to be re-opened.

500 people have already signed Paul's petition to re-open the road. He presented this to the County Council's Leader in December 2016 and wants to see urgent action taken by the Council to get the road back into use again.

    I am signing this petition as my father lives in Northleach and I regularly visit the town. I am astounded by the amount of time the road has been closed. I suggest that a cost effective solution is to make the affected area a single carriageway with priority in the direction away from Northleach. This would have the advantage that it would ensure that traffic travelling toward the traffic lights at the A429 junction would be slowed. This could be achieved by provided two build outs in the affected carriageway, plus signposting and preferably some lighting. If LED lights were provided the cost of running them and the maintenance costs would be low. Solar powered lights may be possible.

    This road closure has gone on far to long & I think that it should be a priority as the alternative route coming from Cirencester means that you have to turn left at the cross roads before by the old petrol station, & this is not a safe alternative as it is very narrow putting people s lives at risk when it does not have to be.

    WE USE NORTHLEACH EVERYDAY TO USE THE SHOPS AND POST OFFICE SO OUR JOURNEY IS LONGER TO REACH NORTHLEACH AND MORE DANGEROUS AS WE HAVE TO EITHER CROSS THE A429 ONTO MILE END OR TRAVEL TO THE ROUNDABOUT WITH A40/A429

    In terms of the cost of this repair it seems a bargain buy for Glos to do , since that road is used a lot to get to Northleach and takes pressure if the A40.
