Southern Connector Road

Road closure - The Marsh, Wanborough

We will be closing part of The Marsh during the construction of the Southern Connector Road in order to keep residents and motorists safe whilst works are carried out. The closure will take place from Monday, 4 October 2021 for 11 months.

Land and properties will continue to be accessible from the North and South however, it will no longer be possible for motorists to use The Marsh as a through-route.

Access will be maintained for cyclists and pedestrians throughout the closure and the footpath plan below will be updated as construction progresses:

A diversion route will also be signposted for motorists and is available to view below:

Once the scheme is complete, access to The Marsh will be reinstated via the Southern Connector Road.

Bus operators are aware of this closure and will be communicating details of their diversion routes through their websites. School transportation in the area will continue however, it is expected journeys will take longer than usual.

For residents with mobility issues, who are no longer able to access a bus stop during the diversion, there will be a community transport service available that will take you to required destinations in Swindon. Alternatively, this transport service will take you to a bus stop in Wanborough for journeys outside the Borough.

This transport link is provided by Akcess CIC using their Steps For You service and is available from Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 4.00pm. Akcess CIC can be contacted on 01793 677191.

We apologise in advance for any disturbance caused by these works.
