Overnight Closure of A303

Hits: 566


Contractors for Highways England have just informed us as follows:

"Skanska, working on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out essential resurfacing works on the A303 eastbound and westbound between the A30 / A303 Devonshire House junction and the A303 / A358 Southfields Roundabout. The purpose of this scheme is to replace the life expired road surface.

These works are scheduled to be carried out overnight between Thursday 20 April 2017 and Friday 19 May 2017 on weekday nights only (excluding Friday 28 April and Monday 1 May) between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00.

Due to the type of work taking place and to ensure the safety of both the public and our workforce, we need to fully close the A303 overnight, eastbound and westbound, between the A30 / A303 Devonshire House junction and the A303 / A358 Southfields Roundabout, on the above dates.

During the closures, clearly signed diversion routes will be in place. They will be:

A303 westbound traffic – Traffic to be diverted from the A303 / A358 Southfields Roundabout to travel southbound on the A358 to then travel westbound on the A30 to the A30 / A303 junction to re-join the A303 westbound.

 

A303 eastbound traffic – Traffic to be diverted from the A303 / A30 junction to travel eastbound on the A30 to then travel northbound on the A358 to the A303 / A358 Southfields Roundabout to re-join the A303 eastbound.

 

 Please note that whilst we always aim to work to the programme, unforeseen circumstances may mean changes to it. If this happens, we will do our best to notify you as soon as possible.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption the work may cause. We will of course make every effort to ensure that the impact on the local community is kept to a minimum.

If you have any queries or comments about the works and would like further information, please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
