GULLY MANAGEMENT

In order to ease the flow of water during the wetter months, we would like to ask residents who have gullies near their properties to monitor them and advise when they need clearing.  
As you can imagine we have 100s within Purton and to keep them monitored would be impossible, so any help by the community would be welcomed. 
If you are unsure if their are any in your area, we can advise.
Without support for the community in monitoring and advising that they need clearing we cannot ensure the free flow  and hopefully reduce flooding and help control water management. 
Please contact the Parish Council Office if you would like to help. 01793 771066.

TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF B4553 COMMON PLATT(PART) LYDIARD MILLICENT AND PURTON 6th DECEMBER 2019 UPDATED 23-10-19

TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF B4552 (PART)PACKHORSE, PURTON (Ref: TTRO 6293) 6th DECEMBER 2019   Updated 22nd November 2019

As consultant representative for Wiltshire Council, I write to inform you of carriageway repair works programmed between the junction with Cricklade Road and the junction with Tadpole Lane. The site extents can be viewed on the attached drawing.
These works involve carriageway repairs ahead of surface dressing works which are to be undertaken next spring, and the adjustment of surface ironwork.
The works will commence on Friday 6th December 2019 and will be completed by Tuesday 10th December 2019 between the hours of 09:00 and 15:00 (excludes weekend working), however, on occasions they may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.
There will be advance information signs erected on site giving confirmed start dates.
Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the contractor & local residents.
Road Markings will be replaced on completion of the surface dressing works.
The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be South on the B4553 to the B4198, East to the A419, North to the Culcutt Street junction, West to the B4040 roundabout and then South on the B4553 and vice versa.
The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway.  I have suggested to residents that when leaving their property, to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, there will be traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works, to speak to them, explain where they live, and they will be able to assist.
There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore I have recommended to residents that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access.
Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.  A letter drop was undertaken to all the residents located within the site extents on Wednesday 20th November 2019.
I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire's highway network.
Should you require any further information in advance of the works please do not hesitate to contact me on the details shown below. If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in operation, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person.
