Melksham bypass consultation - results published

March 10, 2021 12:34 PM

Wiltshire Council has published a report on the recent Melksham bypass consultation.

The consultation was held between Thursday 5 November 2020 and Sunday 17 January 2021, with 1,018 people responding to the online consultation, and more than 175 email and written submissions.

The next stage will be a further round of public consultation to inform the Outline Business Case.

The A350 Melksham Bypass was one of the nine projects identified as a priority by the Western Gateway Strategic Transport Body, an alliance of south west local authorities that sets out the transport strategy for the region, as the road is a regionally important north-south route that connects the M4 to Poole.

The A350 at Melksham is one of the busiest major roads in Wiltshire, with daily traffic volumes generally above 35,000 vehicles per day, and heavy goods vehicles accounting for around 8% of all vehicles.
