Old Hardenhuish Lane, Chippenham road will be closed from Monday for over two weeks.

From Monday (July 13) Old Hardenhuish Lane will be closed to all traffic from its junction with B4528 to its junction with A420.

This is to allow for telecoms company, Gigaclear Limited to carry out the urgent laying of cables, as well as building cabinets and chambers.

The alternative safe route for pedestrians and traffic will be via the B4528 and the A420.

According to Wiltshire Council, the works are expected to take 16 days to complete, while the closure notice will have a maximum duration of three weeks.

A Wiltshire Council spokesman said: “The closure and diversion route will be clearly indicated by traffic signs.

“Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works."
