Wiltshire Council have informed us that carriageway repair works programmed between Oaksey and the junction with the A429, Malmesbury will commence on Tuesday 26th November 2019 and will be completed by Wednesday 27th November 2019 between the hours of 07:00 and 18:00.  These works involve carriageway repairs ahead of surface dressing works which are to be undertaken next spring, and the adjustment of surface ironwork.  The site extents can be viewed HERE.


Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the contractor & local residents.  Road Markings will be replaced on completion of the surface dressing works.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be South on the A429, East on unnamed road (Eastcourt), North on unnamed road, Oaksey and vice versa.

The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway.  Wiltshire Council have suggested to residents that when leaving their property, to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, there will be traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works, to speak to them, explain where they live, and they will be able to assist.

There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore Wiltshire Council have recommended to residents that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access. 

Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.  A letter drop was undertaken to all the residents located within the site extents on Monday 11th November 2019.
