London Road Resurfacing Starts Monday 1 April
Work will be starting on Monday 1 April to resurface A4 London Road from the junction with Elcot Lane to the entrance to Savernake Hospital. This will include new, altered road markings near the hospital to provide safety improvements at this stretch of the route - very good news indeed. The project represents an investment by Wiltshire Council of more than £320,000 in Marlborough's roads.
This will necessitate closure of the road to all vehicles Mon-Fri between 7pm-midnight, with an anticipated completion on 3 May. Pedestrian access will be maintained, local residents have been informed and local businesses will be open as usual. Dedicated traffic management operatives will monitor access and provide assistance and signage for motorists, and the diversion route - via A4-A338-A346 and vice versa - will be clearly marked.
For the formal notice, diversion route and plan of the works please click here and for further information you can contact the contractor - Atkins - on 01225 730360
As part of the process towards creating our Neighbourhood Plan, towards the end of last year a benchmarking survey was commissioned for the town centre. Part of that included an online survey - thank you to those who took the time to complete it. The final report of this survey has now been published and you can read it here.
New look website on the way
We're working hard behind the scenes to update our website with a fresh look, to provide easier navigation and an updated tourist information area. This means our pages will be offline for a few hours on the evening of Tuesday 2 April.
Temporary Road Closures
Please note that we only receive advance notices about road closures, not roadworks such as temporary traffic lights.
For details of all potential highways disruptions planned for the area please see http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/highways-road-closures for a county-wide map of current and planned roadworks, or contact Wiltshire Council on 0300 456 0100
