Cash for highway improvement projects
Wiltshire Council's "Substantive Highway Scheme" gives out money for road safety works which are too big for an individual Area Board to cope with. This year a total of £205,900 was available. Of 16 bids 13 were successful. These include works to Bythesea Road in Trowbridge to make life easier for pedestrians (£10,700), improvements to the Boreham Road / Bishopstrow Road junction in Warminster (£19,000), and more pavements in Wingfield (£16,800).
A bid for £69,000 for improvements in Edington for the Monastery Road / Lower Road junction just missed out, but could come back in if there are hold-ups on any of the other schemes.
