SU1282 : Blocked lane, South Leaze

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Elcombe, Swindon, Great Britain

Blocked lane, South Leaze
Blocked lane, South Leaze
The lane connecting Swindon and Wharf Road via South Leaze has now been truncated, the road bridge over the M4 motorway being demolished and replaced by a footbridge. Here, the placing of a substantial roadblock in the path of any vehicular traffic makes the situation clear in no uncertain terms, although I noticed tyre marks showing that cars had merely driven round it to the left. This roadblock is one of a number of measures relating to the development of West Wichel to the east of South Leaze, including the demolition of farm cottages and the construction of a road which will transect the lane further north in order to connect Wichelstowe with the M4 motorway junction and Wootton Bassett.
