Alert message sent 30/01/2020 13:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Date: 30 January 2020

Drivers warned about potential delays in Chippenham, Melksham, Trowbridge and Westbury areas next week

Drivers in the Chippenham, Melksham, Trowbridge and Westbury areas are being warned they may experience delays next week.

Abnormal loads will be travelling through these parts of the county next Monday (3/2) and Tuesday (4/2).

They will be leaving Junction 17 of the M4 at around 10am on both days, travelling down the A350 around Chippenham, Melksham and then Trowbridge before taking the B3097 to Brook Lane, Westbury.

Tuesday will see a further move into Westbury from the M4 from around lunchtime onwards.

The loads are rail infrastructure, up to 4.7m wide, and will be accompanied by private and police escort vehicles.

Due to their size, they will be both slow-moving and have the potential to cause congestion in places where oncoming traffic will be required to pull in and wait for it to pass. Traffic travelling behind the moves will not be able to overtake.

Wherever possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum although both hauliers and motorists are asked to please be patient should they come across the loads.

Anyone travelling over this period on time critical matters should allow sufficient additional time for their journey.

Police escorting resources are being provided by officers, paid for by the haulier at no cost to the public.
