The A417 Missing Link is an important landscape-led road project that will improve road safety, reduce traffic congestion, and improve connectivity for road users and local communities, while unlocking economic growth in Gloucestershire and beyond.
Highways England has submitted its plans for the A417 Missing Link project, which have now been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate for examination.
The examination and decision making process will take around a year and further information about this process and how people can get involved can be found on the Planning Inspectorate’s website: www.infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/application-process/participating-in-the-process/
Subject to approval, Highways England expects to start improvement work in 2023, and for the road to be open to traffic in 2026.
