A345 Road Closure Notice


“to inform you of resurfacing works programmed along A345 Salisbury Road, Pewsey. The site extents and diversion route plans can be viewed on the drawings attached.

These works involve repairs to the existing carriageway, the installation of new road markings and the adjustment of surface ironwork.

The works will commence on Monday 9th August 2021 and will be completed by Friday 20th August 2021 between the hours of 07:00 and 18:00 (no weekend working), however, on occasions they may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started. There is advanced 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 within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the contractor & local residents.

The diversion route for all ‘through traffic’ whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be north along A345, east along George Lane, south along A346 and A338, west along A342, north along A345 and vice versa.

Road Markings and Ironwork adjustments may need to be completed at a later date.

The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken 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. I have 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.

I have recommended to residents and businesses 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 with regards to access.

A letter drop to all residents and businesses within the closure extents has been carried out.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire’s highway network”.
