Dursley News - August 2018

This month has seen a continuation of the work on the re-alignment of the road at the bottom end of Long Street with kerbing now installed. It may be some time before the road has its final surfacing but meanwhile lights are controlling the traffic on Long Street just above this work site. This part of town has changed significantly over the last ten years and the new road will make access easier to the increasing number of new houses on the Littlecombe site.
