Wiltshire Council

Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984

Temporary Closure of: Dunch Lane (Part), Melksham (Ref: TTRO 7103)

Notice is hereby given that the Wiltshire Council has made an Order to close temporarily to all traffic:

Dunch Lane (Part), Melksham; from its junction with A350 Beanacre Road to its junction with Southbrook Road.

To enable: Network Rail Infrastructure Ltd to use a HIAB lorry to lift large 1 tonne stone from the rail track and place back on the Pallister.

Alternative route: via Dunch Lane (unaffected length) – A365 – A350 Beanacre Road and vice versa.

The closure and diversion route will be clearly indicated by traffic signs.

This Order which previously came into operation on 19 December 2020 will now recommence on 17 April 2021 and the closure will be required until 08 May 2021. It is anticipated that the works will take the stated duration to complete depending upon weather conditions. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works. The Order has a maximum duration of 18 months.

For further information please contact Kelly Wilcox on behalf of Network Rail Infrastructure Ltd on 0370 0500792.
