A350 Chippenham Bypass Dualling 6 October 2016

Upgrade of the existing single two-lane A350 Chippenham Bypass to dual two-lane standard from its northern terminus to the junction with the A4, being constructed progressively in a series of short upgrades. The widened road will link in with the recently improved dual carriageway from Chippenham to the M4.

Work has already been completed in the middle part of the bypass around Brook Roundabout and work is progressing to the north and south.

In time, Wiltshire Council plan to widen and improve the entire bypass from Lackham to the M4 to the same standard.

A350 Twin Sails Bridge 28 April 2012

The current Poole Bridge, built in 1927, links the port to the town centre; and since the opening of Holes Bay Road all traffic from the Continent is directed along it, leading to delays when the bridge lifts. As part of their regeneration scheme Poole Borough Council intend to construct a new lifting bridge across Holes Bay to the north. With an open height of 35 metres, the bridge has been architecturally designed with the purpose of becoming a local landmark.
