Traffic Management

Upcoming Night Closures for Surfacing

There will be a series of overnight closures of the A350 between Bumpers Farm Roundabout and the Malmesbury Road Roundabout for through traffic. This is for surfacing and lining of the new and old sections of road on the long straight between Brook and Badger roundabouts and some work around Brook Roundabout. Access will still be maintained for businesses and residents via Badger roundabout but the A350 will be closed to northbound traffic at Bumpers Farm roundabout for all 6 nights, so there will be no access to Stainers Way via Brook Roundabout during this time.

The closures will come into effect between 8pm and 6am and the following areas and directions will be affected on the dates below. Diversions and Variable Message Signs along the A350 will be in operation during these times. Diversion Route

During the Spring months we will be tying the new carriageway into the existing roads at various points and widening the entry and exits from Chequers and South Cepan roundabouts as well as creating a central reservation area where we have created the new northbound carriageways. As a consequence there needs to be some traffic management at timesPlease see the Project Bulletin 4 – Spring 2018 for the latest information.


Traffic Management needs to be in place throughout the length of the works sections on the A350 for the duration of the works.

Drawings from our Traffic Management contractor explaining how this will be implemented are below.  Click on the links below to view.  There will be a temporary speed limit through the traffic management of 40mph.
