Notice of traffic management, A422, Westbury

Posted in Roads & Transport

What are we doing?

In early April, BT will be carrying out utility diversions along the A422. These diversions are required to facilitate the construction of the new A422 permanent overbridge that will carry traffic over the new HS2 railway.

To do this safely, we will introduce temporary traffic management on the A422 in the form of multi-phase traffic.

We will be monitoring the timing of the lights as well as the traffic flow on the A422. Where practical, we will make improvements andadjustments to the lights as required. To reduce the impact to road users, traffic lights will be in use during off peak hours of 9am-3pm and 8.30pm-5.30am.

Once the new A422 Overbridge is constructed, these utilities will be permanently rediverted across the bridge. The permanent diversions of these utilities are expected to be carried out in 2025.

When will these works take place?

A section of the A422, near Westbury, will have off-peak traffic management, in the form of two-way traffic lights, for approximately four weeks beginning in early April. These traffic lights will be in operation between the hours of:

• 9am-3pm

• 8.30pm-5.30am

Where works allow, we will remove traffic management when it is not required.

Where will the works take place?

The image above, shows the approximate locations that will have off-peak traffic management on the A422 near Westbury.

There may be a short duration outside of the advertised times to allow for our traffic management crews to set-up or take-down road signage and traffic equipment. Lane closures will not be operational during these times, however you may see our crews setting up within the highway.
