A303 Closures

Following the closure of the A303 over the weekend which saw the waterproofing material within the eastbound carriageway replaced, we are now working to replace the joints and replacing material on the A303 westbound carriageway at the A3093 Picket Twenty junction.

To allow the work to be undertaken in a safe environment, the following closures of the A303 have been scheduled:

  • Monday 20 to Friday 24 November (5 nights, between 9pm to 6am) – full closure of the A303 westbound from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A342/A343 Hundred Acre junction
  • Monday 27 to Wednesday 29 November (3 nights, between 9pm to 6am) – full closure of the A303 westbound from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A342/A343 Hundred Acre junction

In addition, the A303 westbound carriageway from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A342/A343 Hundred Acre junction will be closed over the first weekend in December, from 9pm on Friday 1 December through to 6am on Monday 4 December.

During these closures a clearly signed diversion will be in place via the A3093, Churchill Way, Northern Avenue (A3057), Redon Way, Churchill Way West and A343.

Signs advertising these closures will be erected in advance at the junction.
