Road Closures & disruptions: Saturday 3rd October onwards

On Saturday 3rd October, two crews from Swindon Borough Council will be working on Old Vicarage Lane from 8am until 6pm. They will be applying a surface dressing (which involves laying a new surface across the top of the existing road to ensure weather resistance in the approaching winter).

During this time, Old Vicarage Lane will be closed to all traffic from the Thornhill Road junction to the Nightingale Lane junction.

At the same time, work will begin on some patch repair work on Highworth Road. This will occur at various points along the road but the crews will operate a give/take traffic control system to minimise the disruption. This work will run until Wednesday 7th October.

Should you experience any issues with the work, please contact the Parish Clerk, Claire Penny on
