A303 | Wiltshire | Road Closure | Long Delays 30 minutes

The A303 is closed in both directions between its junctions of the A36 (Deptford) to the A350 (Hindon) with delays of at least 30 minutes for approaching traffic. This road closure is due to a HGV fire earlier this morning with a recovery and extensive clean-up operation on-going. Highways England has resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible however resurfacing is also required and it is expected that the A303 will remain closed until at least Sunday morning.

For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect disruption with extra journey time.
