Salisbury junction improvements

Wiltshire Council undertook a feasibility study aimed at improving three key junctions around Salisbury - Exeter Street Roundabout, Harnham Gyratory and Park Wall Junction - for cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicles.

A public consultation was carried out in June and July 2021 which revealed that there was considerable doubt that the proposals would improve conditions for most users. As the study progressed it also became evident that it would not be possible to put forward a viable business case under the Department for Transport's Major Road Network  programme based on current and projected traffic volumes. The assessment was complicated by the lingering effect of COVID-19 on traffic data.

Subsequently it was decided to not proceed with the Major Road Network scheme and instead develop a scheme focused on the two most congested junctions - Exeter Street Roundabout and Harnham Gyratory - with alternative funding.

The reduced scheme is now in the detailed design stage. Further traffic surveys were carried out in May 2022 to capture traffic data post COVID-19. The surveys and design work are being coordinated with National Highways' study at Southampton Road and College Roundabout to ensure that the schemes are joined up."

We provided a progress update to Salisbury City Council at its full Council meeting on 4 September 2023. This presentation can be found under the downloads section of this web page.
