Ring road to be closed for work
SECTIONS of Salisbury’s busy ring road will be closed overnight over the next week to allow for improvements to be made.
The Highways Agency will be resurfacing some sections “where the road has reached the end of its working life” as well as renewing road markings on the A36 around the city.
The work, which begins tomorrow is taking place on the northbound carriageway between College and St Mark’s roundabouts and southbound between Castle and St Mark’s roundabouts.
The closures for southbound work between Castle and St Mark’s roundabout will be in force between 8pm and 6am on Thursday, and on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
Overnight closures between 8pm and 6am with signed diversion routes will be in place tomorrow, Friday and Monday between College and St Mark’s roundabouts.
Alex Knapp from the Highways Agency said: “We have carefully scheduled the work to take place overnight, when traffic flows are at their lowest, to minimise disruption but we would advise road users to plan their journeys and allow extra time to travel.”
The following diversions will be set up:
Road users travelling northbound will leave the A36 at College Roundabout, travel south along A338 Churchill Way and join the A3094 until it rejoins the A36.
Road users travelling southbound will leave the A36 to follow the A3094 and A338, rejoining the A36 at College roundabout.
High-sided vehicles wishing to travel eastbound along the A30 will turn into the A345 Castle roundabout, then join the A345 and then the Portway before heading south along the A338 to St Thomas’ Bridge roundabout, taking the A30 east.
