Abnormal load travelling on M4 and through Wroughton on Sunday

Alert message sent 08/03/2019 11:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Road users in the Wroughton area may experience delays on Sunday (March 10).

An abnormal load is to leave Membury Services at 7am and travel along the M4 in a westbound direction before leaving the motorway at J16 Swindon. It will then travel through both Hay Lane and Wharf Road before reaching its destination in Mill Lane, Wroughton.

The packet will consist of the prime mover plus both private and police escort vehicles, with the load itself being a footbridge of some 38.5m in length.

Due to its size, the load will be both slow moving and have the potential to cause congestion in places where oncoming traffic will be required to pull in and wait for the packet to pass. Traffic travelling behind the move will not be able to overtake.

Wherever possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum although both hauliers and motorists are asked to please be patient should they come across this load. Anyone travelling over this period on time critical matters should allow sufficient additional time for their journey. 

Police escorting resources are being provided by officers, paid for by the haulier at no cost to the public.
