Update on major town centre improvement project

By Barrie Hudson - 5 February 2024


Swindon Borough Council says progress is continuing on the improvement scheme at Fleming Way.

A spokesperson said: "While we wait for utility companies to finish their work, Colas has continued to bring forward the western end of Fleming Way.
"This part of the scheme will be used as a turning circle and provide bus stops for national services.
"To help with the construction, some road closures will need to be in place as new kerbing, drainage and ducting are installed."
These measures include:
- A two-week closure at Cheltenham Street and Beales Close from Monday, 19 February
- Overnight closures of Holbrook Way and Milford Street from the junction of Gloucester Street on 28 and 29 February and 1 March from 10pm to 6am
The overall Fleming Way scheme will include vastly improved public open spaces with 166 new trees and over 23,000 plants, as well as new cycle lane facilities that link up the main cycling routes across the town.
