    Its great news that the road surface it to be renewed, but it seems Highways England is not very interested in installing better sound proof barriers.

    Why isn’t there more parking spaces on this estate?

    I would like to request that yellow parking lines be put on the road outside my house. As we don’t have pavements in my part of the road, the road narrowed and with open plan gardens, the traffic is driving on my garden and I have had to put some quarry stones on the edge. People are still parking on the narrow part of the road and hence when trying to drive past, they are going on to the grass and churning it up. I live in Stocken Close and when they put the yellow lines down, for some reason they didn’t put them on the narrow part of the road . I like to keep my garden tidy with a few flowers but I’m not happy when cars are having to drive over the edge of my garden. Any help would be appreciated.

      Gloucestershire Highways developed the parking restriction scheme and some areas were left unmarked to allow for resident parking; a full consultation was undertaken at the time.
      We understand why you are unhappy with vehicles driving over your property and this should not be happening, however Gloucestershire Highways are unable to make any changes now as it would involve a further Traffic Regulation Order.
      Hopefully the measures you have taken will prevent any further damage.

    Pleased to hear of the road resurfacing on the M5 designed to reduce noise levels.
    Will the slip road at Junction 11a (Southbound) also be included?
    The previous project some years ago actually ignored residents of Sussex Gardens with the freshly laid surface beginning at, approximately, the bridge over the Hucclecote Road bringing this small estate no relief whatsoever!!

      No, the slip roads are not included in the resurfacing scheme.
      We have been told the new low noise surface will significantly reduce the noise pollution, the scheme should be completed by the end of the month.

    Is there a possibility to increase traffic warden patrols along Hillview Road in Hucclecote. At evening rush hour the sheer number of people parking/stopping on double yellow makes travelling up this road increasingly chaotic.
