Road Works 3rd – 14th June

June Road Works
The changes to the junction between Lower Westwood Road (opposite the New Inn) and Farleigh Lane have been rescheduled by Wiltshire Council for the two weeks commencing on 3rd June. While the works are in progress, two way traffic light control will be in place on the Lower Westwood Road (C217); the first 50 metres of Farleigh Lane from the New Inn junction will be closed to traffic. A description of the planned works can be found using the ‘New Inn Traffic Calming Measures’ link on the Home Page.”

Road Closure 28th – 30th May

May Road Closure
The section of the road through Lower Westwood (C217) between the New Inn and the junction with Lyfield Lane will be closed for 24 hours between 28th and 30th May. This closure is required to enable Wessex Water to install a new water main shut off valve. The only realistic diversion into and out of Westwood will be via Jones Hill. Map of the extent of the road closure and the signed diversion route can be viewed below

New Inn Traffic Calming Measures

New Inn Traffic Calming Scheme

There have been a number of concerns raised in recent years from Westwood residents and the local Speed Watch team relating to traffic management issues at the junction of Farleigh Lane and the Lower Westwood road (the area around the New Inn). Specifically, excessive vehicle speed (with consequent danger to pedestrians and cyclists), but also damage caused to the foundations of the stone wall opposite the New Inn as a result of vehicles parking on the virtual pavement and grass verge.Wiltshire Highways have drawn up a modest traffic calming proposal for this area of Lower Westwood, and Wiltshire Council have now included this scheme in their 2023-24 Highways budget
