20mph Restrictions - Have Your Say
Data from Metrocounts on a number of our roads has been collected and put into a report from Wiltshire Council which shows the results and some options for areas of the town that could be restricted to 20mph. If you would like to read the report and/or have a view on whether 20mph zones are a good idea please take a short survey (only 4 questions!) or pop into the office or the Library to collect a paper copy.

George Lane Resurfacing: 3rd-11th April
Wiltshire Council has given us notice that George Lane is set to be resurfaced along its entire length as well as having new 'slow' road markings added near crossing points for Marlborough St Mary's School.
The work is scheduled for the Easter holidays to minimise disruption to the school run, and will take place during the daytime to reduce noise disturbance to residents. While this means the road will be closed to traffic every effort will be made to maintain access for local residents, businesses and shoppers via the George Lane car park, but access will inevitably switch between either Salisbury Road or Pewsey Road depending on work schedules. If access to the car park is not possible from George Lane, manned access to ensure pedestrian safety will be arranged to and from the High Street entrance to cover those short periods of time. Any new information will be clearly signed by the contractor.
