As consultant representative for Wiltshire Council, I write to inform you of proposed major road works on the B3109 at Westwood crossroads, Bradford on Avon, from the national speed limit south for approximately 900m, including the Westwood crossroads. These works are programmed to start 18th October 2010 and last for approximately 3 weeks.
These proposed works include isolated areas of carriageway repairs, improvements to the existing drainage system, installation of new kerbing, resurfacing of the carriageway and installation of new road markings and highway signage.
Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works are to be carried out utilising a 2 week period of 24 hour road closure, however access will be maintained between Westwood and Trowle Common using 2 way traffic signals, and from Bradford to Westwood via the north lane past Elms Cross. This will be followed by 1 week of night closures. During the night closures gate men will be employed at either end of the closure to assist with any access requirements.
During the road closure the proposed diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic heading North to Bradford on Avon from Wingfield will be East on A366 Trowbridge Road, North East on C397 Brook Road, North West on A363 Bradford Road, West on C399 Moulton Drive and vice versa.
Please see plans attached indicating closure extents and diversion routes here
There are 3 different closures to enable the work to be carried out. Phase 1 will be utilised for the first 2 weeks under 24 hr closure. Phases 2 & 3 will be utilised during the night closures to enable the work to be undertaken whilst still allowing access in and out of Westwood.
I trust you will find the above useful and should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact Jim Bailey of Wiltshire Council on 07771 721321 or my assistant Daniel Ward on 01225 756600.
