Works to Swindon Road starting 25th October

Works to Swindon Road starting 25th October

Councilor Cathy Martyn Update:
We’ve been advised that remedial works will take place on Swindon Road from 25th October. These should include all lining works being refreshed, so we hope this includes re-marking the pedestrian crossing outside The Grange as we’ve been asking for this for some time.
The works will be completed using 3-way traffic signals and take up to three working days between 0900 to 1530/1630, no road closure is required.
Pedestrian access is due to be maintained, perhaps using banksmen from time to time.
We have been told that the bus stops will be closed for 2 days to ensure safety. This has been pre-agreed with the bus company but without any reference to us. We have asked what notice has been provided to passengers and whether notices have been put on the bus stops to let people know. We are waiting for this information.
We’re also waiting for a map to show the extent of the works. We will post more info as soon as we receive it.
If you have any questions, please email one of us – Councillor David Martyn, Councillor Cathy Martyn or Councillor Brian Ford – contact details below. Thankyou.
