Updated 4pm, Wednesday 10 January

Following recent heavy rainfall, there are some flooding roads and areas in Wiltshire that are flooded or at risk of flooding.

There is a lot of water on the Wiltshire highways network and with freezing temperatures forecast, there will also be some ice. If you are travelling over the weekend, please remember:

  • take extra care and drive to the conditions
  • watch out for surface water on the roads
  • watch out for ice - and be aware of black ice
  • do not drive through floodwater
  • plan your journey before you travel
  • allow extra time for your journey
  • reduce your speed

The following roads are closed because of flooding. However, this isn't a complete list of every affected road in Wiltshire - there may be other roads, particularly side roads and smaller roads, that are experiencing flooding in the county. We are updating this page regularly, but not in real time. For live highways updates, please see one.network map (opens new window). Please do not attempt to drive through floodwater.

  • Smallbrook Road, Warminster
  • Lower Road, Britford
  • Milford Mill Road, Salisbury
  • Newton Tony Road, Allington

There are some river and groundwater flood warnings in place in the county. For the full list of flood warnings, please check for flooding in England (opens new window). This information may change and there may be further flood warnings over the coming days.

Please also sign up for Environment Agency flood warnings at Sign up for flood warnings (opens new window) and be aware of what to do in the event of flooding emergencies at What to do in a flood - Check for flooding (opens new window).

To report flooding, please use MyWilts online reporting

To stay up to date with road closures, follow our social media channels at www.twitter.com/wiltscouncil (opens new window) and www.facebook.com/WiltshireCouncil (opens new window).

Waste collection update

Our waste crews are still out and about emptying bins but there may be some delays to collections, particularly in the more flood-affected areas and where roads remain closed. 

When available, specific information will be posted on the Waste service disruption page (opens new window)
