Road Works in Long Street - Allow extra time!

NOTE DATE = 2016
Roadworks currently in progress in Long Street mean that Long Street is closed on weekday evenings from 1900 to midnight until Thursday 19th May 2016. There is no through road and no parking on Long Street on these evenings. Pedestrian Access is not restricted.

If you are attending a Festival event on Monday to Thursday you will not be able to drive along Long Street or park there after 7pm. The road will be open at the weekend as normal.

The closed stretch runs from Potterne Road roundabout down to the bottom of Long Street where it meets St John Street and High Street. During the closure it is still possible to drive along High St (past Swan Yard and Wilkinson's) and  turn back up St John Street, past the Town Hall to the Market Place.

The only alternative cross-town route open between Market Place and Potterne Road roundabout is via New Park Street and Gains Lane (back of Sainsburys). 

If your planned route would have taken you along Long Street, you are advised to allow extra time to reach your venue and also to find parking, since people who normally park in Long Street at night will be displaced elsewhere.
