A350 road


A350 road

The A350 is a north-south primary route in southern England, that runs from the M4 motorway in Wiltshire to Poole in Dorset. Starting at junction 17 of the M4 motorway north of Chippenham it passes through the towns of Melksham, Westbury, Warminster, Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum, ending in Poole beside Poole Harbour, an English Channel port. There have been many bypasses built along the A350, including at Shaftesbury in the 1950s, Chippenham, Warminster, Blandford Forum and most recently south of Melksham at Semington. Most parts of the route are single carriageway but some of the new bypasses are built to dual carriageway standard.

Westbury Bypass

The single carriage bypass will be to the east of the town and will start from a roundabout near Westbury Cement Works and rejoin the A350 at Madbrook Farm on the road to Warminster. The £33.1m scheme was approved by Wiltshire County Council's regulatory committee last month [cite web|url=http://www.thisiswiltshire.co.uk/display.var.1479828.0.westbury_bypass_plans_to_go_on_show.php|title=Westbury bypass plans to go on show|publisher=This is Wiltshire|date=2007-06-18|accessdate=2008-01-21]
