B4192 closure warning

Please see the following message from Wiltshire Council regarding the closure of the B4192 between Aldbourne and Chilton Foliat:

Dear Sir/ Madam:

As a consultant representative for Wiltshire Council, I write to inform you of carriageway repair works programmed along the B4192 Chilton Foliat, between Aldbourne and Chilton Foliat.

These works involve the resurfacing of the existing carriageway and the installation of new road markings.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works are to be carried out within a temporary road closure during night working hours, to ensure that adequate health and safety is maintained for local residents and the Contractor.

Closure 1
The works will commence on Thursday 21st February 2013 and weather permitting, will be completed on Monday 25th February 2013. The hours of work will be between 09:30 and 15:30, however on occasions a slight delay in completion may be experienced due to unforeseen circumstances such as late delivery of materials. No works are programmed over the weekend period.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken will be North along the B4001 Stag Hill, east along the B4000 Baydon Road, south along the A338 Baydon Road (to Eddington), west along the A4 Charnham Street, north along the B4192 (to Chilton Foliat) and vice versa.

Closure 2
The works will commence on Tuesday 26th February 2013 and weather permitting, will be completed on Wednesday 27th February 2013. The hours of work will be between 19:00 and 06:00, however on occasions a slight delay in completion may be experienced due to unforeseen circumstances such as late delivery of materials.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken will be west along the B4192 South Street/West Street, north along the C3, east along the C29, east along the C146 (through Baydon), east along the B4000 Baydon Road, south along the A338 Baydon Road (to Eddington), west along the A4 Charnham Street, north along the B4192 (towards Chilton Foliat) and vice versa.

The Contractor will endeavour to maintain vehicular access for the duration of the works; although due to the nature of the works minor disruption is inevitable. It is essential that the road remains un-trafficked until the new material has set, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure. Dedicated Traffic Management operatives at the extent of the works will monitor access and give motorists assistance.

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

Yours sincerely

Ben Sandford
Senior Technician, Highways and Transportation
