Gloucester is a county town on the River Severn near the Welsh Border

Proposals for an inner ring road

During the 1960s proposals were made for an inner ring road which would have been built in two stages. The first stage would consist of roundabouts and gyratories and would have delivered some immediate benefits. The second stage would feature grade separation but due to high costs it would be 15–20 years before funding would become available. The first stage wouldn't become redundant following construction of the second stage but would instead become feeder roads for it.

These proposals never came to fruitition but an inner ring road was eventually built later in the 20th century following a similar route to the 1960s scheme.
