Cash for highway improvement projects

August 10, 2012 4:45 PM

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.
