A36 nighttime closures - weeknights 27 June to 19 July

posted 11 Jun 2016, 01:12 by Parish Council Communications
Skanska will be carrying out resurfacing on the A36 Warminster Road between Church Lane, Monkton Combe (just north of Brassknocker Hill) and the Midford Lane/Church Lane junction at Limpley Stoke, across both northbound and southbound lanes. This will ensure that this section of the A36 remains safe and reliable for drivers for many years to come.

The work, which will be carried out during the night between the hours of 21:00 – 06:00, is scheduled to start on Monday 27 June and will continue for 16 nights (weeknights only) until Tuesday 19 July. 

Due to the type of work taking place and to ensure the safety of both the travelling public and the workforce, it will be necessary to fully close a section of the A36 between Bath and the A350 at Warminster to through traffic, while the night-time work is taking place. Access will be maintained for residents and emergency services, and where applicable, for local businesses.

During the closure, clearly signed diversion routes will be in place. Northbound through traffic will be diverted from the A36 just west of Warminster to take the A350 north to Chippenham where traffic will join the A4 west to Bath. Southbound through traffic will be diverted at Bath to take the A4 east towards Chippenham and then south on the A350 to join the A36 west of Warminster. 

Please note that unforeseen circumstances may mean slight changes to the programme. If this happens, we will do our best to notify you as soon as possible.

Skanska will make every effort to ensure that the impact of the works is kept to a minimum. They understand that the works may cause some inconvenience and disruption and apologise in advance and ask for your patience whilst the works are taking place.

If you have any queries or comments about the works or would like further information, please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email: info@highwaysengland.co.uk
