Major roadworks to start in Rodbourne Cheney

By Jessica Durston - 4 October 2021


Works are scheduled to take place on Vicarage Road and St Mary's roundabout this month.

The two areas within Rodbourne Cheney will soon undergo major work to extend the life of the road and improve the surface for road users.

Swindon Borough Council say the improvements will be carried out in two phases.

The first phase will begin on Monday, 11 October with temporary traffic lights in place between St Mary’s roundabout and the bend where Cheney Manor Road meets Vicarage Road.

This will be in place for one week between 8am and 6pm, as concrete repairs are made to the base of Vicarage Road

The second phase will start on Monday, 18 October for two weeks and will involve patching and resurfacing on Vicarage Road and St Mary’s Roundabout with a temporary road closure in place.

Road closure signs will be placed on the approach roads to St Mary’s roundabout with traffic diverted through Cheney Manor industrial estate and Moredon Road.

Traffic will also be unable to access the junction from Beech Avenue. Diversion signs will be in place and access will be maintained for local residents who live in the area

Progress on both phases is said to be dependent on the condition of the road sub base and weather conditions.

A spokesperson for Swindon Borough said: "Thank you in advance for your patience while the work is carried out. You can view a map of the diversion routes on our website."
