Issue Summary

Traffic jams on A346 into Marlborough from South


Latest Update

10/10/2017 15:36:48 This matter can be taken to Wiltshire Councils councillors for Marlborough and Highways engineers to look for possible solutions. The next Community Area Transport Group meeting is in December and this matter can be discussed then.

CATG Action / Recommendation


Traffic on the A346 entering Marlborough backed up sometimes as far as Cadley. Its particularly bad at rush hour and on a Friday afternoon. The situation is made worse by the 2 roundabouts at George Lane London Road where the road meets the A4 and the junction of the A4 and New Street. The situation has become worse since the Tesco business park opened. Traffic leaving the site has priority and brings the A346 northbound to a halt. The proposed housing opposite will add to the problem both during construction and when occupied.
