Road Closed to LGV

14 Feb 2010

Local haulier Colin J Bale & Sons Ltd, based in Collingbourne Ducis have asked if we can make our readers aware of the objectives of the Marlborough and Tidworth Community Area Working Group.

This group have carried out studies on the volume of traffic using the A338/A346 between the M4 junction 15 and Salisbury. Currently some 7000 vehicles per day travel between the A303 and Marlbough, north of Marlborough this figure rises to 15,000. Of this traffic some 10% is LGV traffic.

Based on these and other findings the group have drawn the conclusion that the road is unsuitable for the current level of LGV traffic, and that LGV’s have a serious impact on the quality of life of those living along the corridor.
The objective of the group is now to examine ways in which the amount of through LGV traffic can be reduced. The full report may be viewed online at the Collingbourne Ducis website www.collingbourne-ducis.com/A338-346WG

If you have local issues you feel should be shared with other employers feel free to contact us and we will include them in this publication.
