Meanwhile, Station Road will be closed to traffic as part of plans to extend the existing shared space in the town centre triangle, to make it safer for pedestrians.
In total the work will take up to nine weeks. Cones and barriers will be in place to keep the public safe at all times as the work is being carried out, while Market Street will be closed to vehicles from 22nd October to 9th November.
For the resurfacing work in Market Street and High Street in mid-November it will also be necessary for the affected roads to be closed temporarily. Further details will be issued closer to the time.
Will Windsor Clive, cabinet member for communities at Gloucestershire County Council, said: "These improvements have been brought about to make the town centre a safer and more attractive place to be. We will work hard to make sure any disruption to daily life is kept to a minimum."
Tim Holder, vice chairman of Cinderford Regeneration Board, said: "This is a very welcome opportunity to further support the regeneration of Cinderford town centre. Any inconvenience to some residents and businesses will be far outweighed by the long-term benefits to everyone."
The plans follow the Traffic and Signage Study in 2010, which recommended a number of works aimed at making the town a safer, more enjoyable place in which to live, shop and visit.
