The closure on London Road for investigations into the double train crash may not be lifted until until next week. 

One of the trains involved in the Salisbury crash went past a red signal as its wheels slipped on the rails, investigators believe.

Based on 'the projected recovery program' after the train crash in Fisherton Tunnel, Wiltshire Council have said that London Road will remain closed until Monday. 

Since around 12.30pm yesterday, London road has been closed between St Mark's roundabout to the Barrington Road junction near Salisbury Crematorium. 

After getting the latest update from British Transport Police, Wiltshire Council advised that the opening of London Road is projected to coincide with train disruptions from Salisbury Station easing on November 8th. 

This is good news, as buses have been diverted and delayed and traffic has been caused by traffic diverting through Bishopdown estate.
