Notification for upcoming work on Kennet Road (SBC Communication)

There will be upcoming works where the Contractor Ringway, will be working on behalf of Swindon Borough Council to undertake maintenance repairs.  The site extents can be viewed on the plan attached.

The purpose of the scheme is to replace the deteriorating surface of the road in order to increase the life span of the carriageway and to provide a safer and better running surface for road users.

To facilitate these works, the Contractor will be undertaking out some minor works to kerbs, footways and carriageway patching prior to the above surfacing date.

The works are provisionally programmed to commence from Monday 25th October 2021 for 2 day between the hours of 08:00 and 16:00, however, on occasions they may over run slightly due to circumstances outside of our control such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.

The work force will maintain pedestrian access for the duration; however due to the nature of the works, some disruption is possible and vehicular access may need to be restricted at times. It is essential that areas remain un-trafficked until the new material has set, as early use could lead to premature failure so works will be undertaken in multiple phases.

SBC would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that these works may cause, but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Swindon’s highway network.

Should you require any further information, please contact Swindon Borough Council.
