Road closures and disruptions

Our road network

The interactive map of Wiltshire displays details of any roadworks being carried out by the council and utility companies.

Emergency works won't appear immediately due to their urgent nature. They will be added to the reporting system when we are notified about them.

Trunk roads and motorways

Trunk roads that run through Wiltshire (A303, A36, A417 and A419) and the M4 motorway are operated and maintained by Highways England.
