Arm of High Street to get one-way trial : A4 Manton to Lockeridge in overnight closure

Two pieces of information on local traffic changes emerged from this week’s meeting of Marlborough Area Board in the Town Hall – neither as yet has firm dates:

First, the narrow part of the High Street that runs north of St Peter’s church is going to be made one-way for an experimental eighteen month period. This trial is being arranged in response to complaints from residents in the street which is too narrow for anything but small cars to pass each other and is often used as a ‘rat run’ by drivers trying to avoid queues at the Pewsey Road mini-roundabout.

The trial was backed by councillors Nick Fogg and Peggy Dow. But there was some strong opposition voiced from the floor of the meeting.  It was said that traffic emerging onto the A4 by Hatto’s the barbers, close to the Pewsey Road mini-roundabout, would be dangerous.  It was argued that it would much better to make this arm of the High Street one-way from west to east so drivers could then go up Hyde Lane and lessen the traffic on the main part of the High Street.

The Area Board Chairman, Chris Humphries, put the proposal to a vote it was narrowly agreed.

If there are no objections to the one-way scheme during the trial it would automatically become permanent.  No date for the start of this trial has been set.  We will bring you the date as soon as we know it.

Secondly, the A4 between Manton and Lockeridge is to be closed for eight nights – sometime in early October.  The closure is to start at 7 pm and this start time worried representatives from Lockeridge who feared evening rush hour traffic would divert onto narrow country lanes and village streets. Watch this space for news of the actual closure dates.
