The A303 in Wiltshire has partially reopened after being closed due to flooding on Wednesday night (January 18).

The eastbound carriageway and entry slip road were closed under the A36 Deptford interchange due to flood water run-off reaching lane two.

National Highways put in place a full eastbound closure for safety reasons between the Deptford interchange and the A360 junction at Winterbourne Stoke, with half a mile of lane two westbound also closed past the flooding incident.

Work has been done to reduce the impact of the floodwater and National Highways has now reopened one lane for traffic on Sunday morning (January 22).

National Highways said: "The A303 in Wiltshire is now open eastbound between the A36 at Deptford and the A360 at Winterbourne Stoke.

"There is reduced capacity with one lane remaining closed while work to clear flooding continues."

The A303 eastbound slip road remains closed due to flooding.

Rob Penney, head of south west service delivery for National Highways, previously said: “Flooding has been a regional issue in the South West, and we’re doing everything we can to prevent the floodwater from freezing and creating further issues.

“We appreciate this will cause some delays to people’s journeys, and we advise people to add a little extra time for their journeys, and to consider alternative routes where they can.”
