A40 Innsworth Gateway Project

Home > A40 Innsworth Gateway project

To support the proposed development north of Gloucester, funding (£4.53 million) was awarded from GFirst LEP’s Growth Deal 3 to help mitigate traffic increases in this area on the A40 as well as access the strategic allocation at Innsworth.

The Innsworth Gateway Project will deliver a new roundabout on the A40 Gloucester Northern Bypass between Elmbridge and Longford to facilitate development at Innsworth, and will provide an upgrade to Longford Roundabout increasing its capacity to accommodate predicted future traffic flows and assist in relieving existing congestion.

To support the project and the final approval of the funding, a business case has been completed. A link to the report is below under “Documents and further information”.
