Even the diversion gives notice on how to get around the Countess Roundabout now! The traffic increase through Bulford, Durrington and Larkhill is going beyond what we all expected!
While the County had a nice bonus from the Government, it yet again had more spent on it around Swindon than in the South of the County!
I will say that I took a trip from Shrewton to Frome last week and I could not believe just how good the road was in comparison to the A345 to Salisbury! In fact Any entrance to Salisbury in any direction are not good!
Shrewton to Frome***** Durrington to Salisbury ** . No doubt they will excuse themselves after the coming winter is over yet again with more botched repairs!
