No mini-roundabout for top of Herd Street

It was announced at the meeting of the Marlborough Area Board (November 6) that the Community Area Transport Group (CATG) has taken the proposal for a mini-roundabout at the junction of Herd Street and the exit from the Acres off its list of possible projects.

The mini-roundabout had been requested by residents of the Acres who, because of the flow of traffic, find it difficult to turn left onto Herd Street or right onto the A346.  Their request had been supported by their Wiltshire Councillor Stewart Dobson.

It had been argued that the mini-roundabout would make access to and exit from the Acres 'easier and quicker' - and would also slow down traffic as it enters the town from the north.  

The CATG meeting in September heard from Wiltshire Council highways engineers that the road there was too wide for a mini-roundabout and that a full sized roundabout would be too expensive.  However, it was pointed out that traffic priority rules would mean any roundabout would not be effective.

Councillor Dobson, who was not at the CATG meeting, told the Board he was "Very disappointed a mini-roundabout at the entrance to the Acres would not be practical...it makes a nonsense to say it's not practical.  I sincerely hope it will go back onto the [CATG] agenda."

CATG's Chairman, Councillor Fogg, explained they had to 'rely strongly' on the highway engineers.
