Congestion is on the stretch of the road eastbound between the Chetcombe Road junction in Mere and the A350 turning in Kingston Deverill.


Motorists are being advised to only make necessary journeys and exercise extreme caution when travelling.

 

A Wiltshire Police spokesperson said: "There have been a few incidents involving people getting stuck and minor road traffic collisions but thankfully we haven't seen anything serious. 

"The message would still be if your journey isn't essential then don't make it."

 

The police are working with the Highways Agency to ensure roads are constantly gritted.
