Closure of B3098 between Westbury and Bratton.

Work to extend a footpath to the White Horse viewing area will begin on the B3098, Bratton Road in Westbury today (8 October).

It will link the existing footway outside of Fairview Farm to the bridleway close to the White Horse viewing area.

In 2017, Westbury Community Area Transport Group received requests from residents to improve the footway provision on the B3098 Bratton Road, leading to the White Horse viewing area and bridleway. This location is well used by pedestrians but the existing footway from the town does not continue far enough. With the support of Westbury Town Council, a funding bid was made to allow the construction of the footway.

Works are expected to take about two weeks to complete and for them to take place safely it is essential to close the road between the viewing area and the farm. The road will be closed for the duration of the works.

The signed diversion route is through Melksham and Devizes. The diversion route must use roads of A or B classification and cannot sign traffic onto the more local C and unclassified roads. While drivers may wish to use these local routes, motorists on longer journeys are advised to use the signed diversion route, and to allow more time for their journeys during the works period.
