A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down news update

You may have noticed signs in the area giving advance notice of lane closures at Countess roundabout.

Highways England are putting in temporary traffic management to help ground investigation teams carry out survey work safely.

Traffic management is due to begin on Sunday 3 November, and involves lane closures on the roundabout and its approaches, over a six-week period, from late Sunday evenings through to early Friday morning. To minimise disruption during busier times, this will be removed from Friday morning around 6am to Sunday evening.

Whilst Highways England understand there will inevitably be some disruption there are no diversions planned, and traffic will still have access to Countess roundabout.

Separately there’s also surveys happening in the Winterbourne Stoke area between Monday 18 and 22 November – with temporary traffic lights in place overnight from 8pm until 6am.
