DRIVERS are set to face delays around Chippenham as a series of large vehicles will disrupt traffic between now and the end of November.

The load is due to leave the M4 Motorway at J17, between 1pm and 2pm, and travel along the A350 towards Chippenham - before travelling along the A4 to Westwells Road, Corsham.

The convoy will contain the load, a steel fabricated structure 4.5m in width, and both private and police cars.

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. Traffic travelling behind the move will not be able to overtake.

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

This is one of a series of abnormal loads that will run either daily or on alternate days along the same route.

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