The Parade - Resurfacing Works

We've been notified that on WEDNESDAY 21 NOVEMBER (brought forward from original date of Friday 23 November) Wiltshire Council's contractors will be carrying out resurfacing works  in The Parade. This means the road will be closed along its entire length to all traffic and all parking will be suspended. Pedestrian access will be maintained. Clear signs will be erected nearer the time, including the anticipated start/finish times for the closure. Weather permitting, it is expected that this work will be completed in a single day.
