Issue Summary

Codford Upton Lovell traffic on A36 closures


Latest Update

31/05/2018 13:28:58 Thank you for raising this issue. I will get back to you shortly

CATG Action / Recommendation


Whenever there is an accident on the A36 in the vicinity of Codford or Upton Lovell the latter village becomes a rat-run for all diverting traffic. The road thro UL is narrow and incapable of sustaining a lot of fast moving traffic particularly when lorries are involved. Evading each other is a priority of the driver to the detriment of safety and well-kept verges culverts and banks.

Issue Duration

See above when a diversion is in force - eg often.

Who is Affected

The home-owners of the village who strive to keep the place neat and tidy and safe.

What has been done so far

There no signs in the village and villagers resort to trying to persuade drivers to slow down and to be patient. This usually falls on deaf ears and blind eyes.

What would resolve issue

This is the problem becasue we do not want to spoil the village with extra signage and traffic calming measures. I would welcome advice.

Who needs to come together

Police and Highway authorities to discuss with the village PC.
