Diversion Overview A3012 Swindon Rd

Major improvement work to ease access to Swindon and North Wiltshire, reduce congestion at junction 16 and reduce queuing on the M4, which we are carrying out on behalf of Swindon Borough Council, is progressing well.  Due to the activities we will be undertaking and the working space available, we need to close a section of the A3102 overnight to safely carry out the following work:

  • Removal of part of the existing carriageway to tie the new construction into the existing asphalt;
  • Saw cutting across the carriageway to install new drainage, including new gullies;
  • Surfacing and road markings.

A number of individual overnight road closures (up to 12) are necessary to help facilitate this work.  The first set of overnight closures is planned for Monday, 23rd October to Friday, 27th October (5 nights) between 20.00 hrs and 06.00 hrs.

Subsequent overnight closures are currently expected to take place from 08th November and once dates are confirmed advance warning signs will be displayed to advise road users.

How will this affect you?
The road closure (marked red below) will be from Spittleborough Roundabout to the roundabout for Interface / Woodshaw.  Access to all residential and business properties within the closure will be maintained, although this will need to be from the Royal Wootton Bassett side of the closure as there will be excavations across the width of the road near to Spittleborough Roundabout.

The approved and signed diversion route suitable for all through-traffic is as follows:
