Roadworks update: 15th June 2018

As you may have noticed, the roadworks in the village continue but the end is in sight!

Although originally planned for half-term, the work on Pound Corner will now take place on 23rd/24th June. This will be carried out under a three-way traffic light system.

Work on the culvert under the road by Quarrybrook is progressing and should be finished shortly. The agents have, at the Parish Council’s request, filled in the large pot hole at the lights as well.

Councillor Thunder has also flagged a number of issues with the agents at the request of individual residents. These include issues about reinstatement and the repair of a fence.

The good news is that the last tasks are planned to take place on 26th & 27th June.

We are continuing to work closely with the contractors to try to reduce the impact on residents where possible.

A birds eye view of the New Eastern Villages

As part of a project to capture aerial footage of the land within the New Eastern Villages development area, we have given Swindon Borough Council permission to land a drone on the Recreation Ground.

The drone will be shooting footage and landing on the Recreation Ground as needed. The drone controllers will be ensuring that it does not land near residents or interfere with any activities taking place.

Keep an eye open and give it a wave if you see it!
