Latest news and project update
The team at Junction 16 is making steady progress as the overnight work continues and surfacing work is carried out. You may have noticed a slight change in layout as you approach the roundabout along the Great Western Way from Swindon, as the traffic for Wroughton and Royal Wootton Bassett is now separated. On your approach to the roundabout please check the signage to ensure you are in the correct lane for your intended destination.

During the day the team continues to install sign bases and lamp columns, and ducting is being installed across the roundabout, which will be used for street lighting and traffic light cables. The Traffic Signals subcontractor continues on site installing the new traffic light heads, although these will not be fully commissioned until at least the end of April as the loops and cabling for the new traffic light system are not completed yet. The team has also started construction of the maintenance bays across the site, which will ensure the site remains accessible for future maintenance. The kerbing work is now mostly complete across the site.

The upcoming nightly closures are listed below, but it should be noted that these closures continue to be weather dependent. Where possible, we will update the council’s social media if any of the planned closures are cancelled:
