We're exploring the options available to improve the A350 at Melksham including the potential for case for a new bypass to take the A350 around Melksham, are we're seeking the views of residents, businesses and other stakeholders on our progress so far, and the various proposed route options. 
You can find much more information about the proposals - including the route options - on this page and in the downloadable PDF below, but it is important to stress that at this stage, we are seeking feedback on the early stages of the scheme - this is not a statutory consultation. If the scheme progresses, statutory consultation will follow in due course. 
It is also important to note that all route options are indicative and do not show the exact route that any road may take. If and when a preferred option is decided upon, the specifics of the route would be subject to full statutory consultation.  
Due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to display the documents on this page in Melksham Library or other venues as we usually would. However, all documents on this page are printable, and people are also able to request printed copies.
