DISRUPTION is expected as part of a city centre road will be closed for five days.

Part North Street, near Fisherton Street, will be closed from Monday, July 15, until Friday, July 19.

The short section of road will be closed 24 hours a day for drainage works to prepare for the installation of a raised table at the junction.

The street will temporarily become two-way to ensure access for residents, businesses and customers.

The parking bay outside 26 North Street will be suspended to make it easier for vehicles to turn around at the vehicular entrance to Jubilee Court.

Vehicles exiting St Clements Mews will be directed to turn left only to minimise further disruption.

The investment has used some of the £9 million funding from the government’s Future High Streets Fund in a bid to enhance the road network and public spaces along Fisherton Street.

Councillor Nick Holder, Wiltshire Council's cabinet member for highways, street scene and flooding, said: “Creating vibrant and well-connected communities is a key priority for us. We are pleased to see these improvements taking shape and more areas opening up for public use.

“We appreciate the closure of this junction may cause some disruption for local residents and businesses and apologise for any inconvenience. Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum wherever possible, and all local amenities in this area will remain open and accessible during the construction period.”
