Motorists report long delays whilst trying to cross town this morning, with journeys taking in excess of 20 minutes at the moment.

Tailbacks stretch up as far as the bypass roundabout on Curzon Street.

The multi-way traffic lights  are scheduled to remain in place throughout this week until the 10th July. However, from the 11th July until the 24th July, there will be two-way traffic lights in place at the same location - New Road whilst work continues at the site.

With the A4 being the main route through Calne and the route to Kingsbury Green Academy and Holy Trinity Schools, long delays are expected and motorists are advised to allow for a lot of extra time to travel.
