Abnormal load heading to BMW in Swindon

Alert message sent 22/07/2020 12:36:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


Road users on the M4 and A419, as well as those around Swindon, may experience some additional delays tomorrow morning - Thursday, July 23.

An abnormal load is due to enter Wiltshire through junction 18 of the M4 at about 10.45am, exiting via junction 15 and onto the A419 before travelling northbound towards the Rat Trap junction.

The load (2 x Panel Press) will exit at the Rat Trap junction and travel along Highworth Road, Hobley Drive and then Swindon Road before arriving at their final destination - BMW on Swindon Road.

The convoy will consist of two loads, both up to 4.1m wide and weighing 84t and 110t respectively.

Due to both width and weight, the load will be slow moving and have the potential to cause congestion at junctions and also within Swindon where oncoming traffic will be required to pull in and wait for the convoy to pass.

Wherever possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum although both hauliers and motorists are asked to please be patient should they come across said move. 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 and paid for by the haulier at no cost to the public.
