DEVIZES Road will be closing for three weeks from Monday, January 10, for the "poor surface condition" to be repaired.

Here's everything you need to know.

Why is Devizes Road closing?

Dr Mark McClelland, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for transport, said: “Devizes Road, Salisbury, has been identified as having poor surface condition.

"A phased plan of works has been scheduled to take place over the next three years to address this."

This set of works is the first phase, focussing on the area (on Devizes Road) between the Royal Oak pub and the Harper Road junction.

What will be closed?

As a result of the resurfacing, Wiltshire Council is closing the A360 Devizes Road from the roundabout with Ramaleaze Drive to the roundabout with Highbury Avenue.

Despite the closure, the authority has assured that businesses along this stretch of road will be open as usual.

How long will the closure last?

The road will be closed to motorists every weekday between 7am and 6pm.

It will be open as normal at weekends.

The closure will be a total of 15 days, due to end on Friday, January 28.

Councillor McClelland added: “Having this extended daily works period does mean that the resurfacing will be completed more quickly than if the closure period was reduced to 9am to 3.30pm."

Will a diversion be in place and where?

Yes - motorists will be diverted along The Avenue and A36.

“Residents have been written to informing them of the arrangements and advanced signing has been erected warning motorists,” Cllr McClelland said.
