Wiltshire Council have given notice of carriageway repair works programmed along Wynsome Street, Goose Street and Southwick Road, Trowbridge. The site extents can be viewed here.

The works will involve asphalt patch repairs, adjustment of ironwork, reinstatement of road markings and associated maintenance works, and will commence on Monday 13th September 2021, to be provisionally completed by Friday 17th September 2021 between the hours of 09:00 and 15:30. However, on occasion these may overrun due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or on discovering the need for additional repairs once the work has started. There will be advance information signs erected on site giving confirmed start dates.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried out under a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health and safety measures are maintained for both the contractor and local residents. Road markings and ironwork adjustments may need to be completed at a later date.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken under the road closure will be as per the attached road diversion drawing in the link above.

The contractor, Atkins Global, will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; however, depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where, 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. It has been 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 will be unable to drive over the newly-laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure: it has therefore been 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 regarding access. Advanced signing will be erected and letter drops to all residents located within the site extents will commence prior to the works. Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.

Wiltshire Council and its contractor Atkins Global would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust residents will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire’s highway network.
