Carriageway Works C15 Hilmarton to Bushton

Uploaded: July 7, 2021

Dear Sir/Madam,


As consultant representative for Wiltshire Council, I write to inform you of carriageway repair works programmed on C15 Hilmarton to Bushton. The site extents can be viewed on the attached drawing.


These works involve surface dressing over patches that were completed earlier this year.


These works will be completed Thursday 22nd of July 2021 between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00. However, on occasions, works may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns and unfavourable weather conditions. Road markings will be replaced in the weeks following the completion of the surface dressing works.


Due to the nature of the works and the local environment the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for both the Contractor and local residents.


The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be as per the attached road diversion drawing.


The contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway. It has been advised to residents that when leaving their property to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, to speak to traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works who will be able to assist. There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore it has been recommended to resident that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access.


Advanced signing will be erected and letter drops to all residents located within the site extents will commence Monday 5th of July 2021. Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.


I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire’s highway network.


Should you require any further information in advance of the works please refer to If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in operation, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person on site.


Kind Regards,
