Marlborough Road Closure – UPDATE 13th January

Cllr Dave Martyn Update:
Priors Hill – Comet Way: impact from Marlborough Road Closure – UPDATE 13th January
A short update this morning.
At the request of your local councillors and Robert Buckland QC MP, the Police have attended Priors Hill several times, following reports of high volumes of traffic and large vehicles ignoring the ‘not suitable for HGVs’ signs.
The Police have raised their concerns with Swindon Borough Council Officers as they consider the current signage to be inadequate.
We have since received concerns regarding the speed of the increased volume of traffic using Comet Way in order to access Priors Hill and we have also alerted the Police to this.
The Police have also requested that residents continue to share photographs and videos of problems.
Please can you continue to send these to us by email. We continue to deal with a very high volume of residents queries on issues arising from the road closure, and email is the best way that we can forward your concerns and photos onto the police. Thank you.
