I notice a load of yellow markings around the areas the cowboys repaired, maybe due some proper repairs?

Lights were back in operation this morning!  Roundabout at the old Co-op completely blocked and traffic tailing back to the Market Place!  Very impressed!!!

It seems some folk think that a decent Fish n Chip restaurant in the High Street will be a good thing that might actually entice new folk into the town centre ...


Apparently, the people involved already run other fish n Chip restaurants on the Dorset coast and know what they are doing. I assume they will be bring fresh fish up from the coast every day ....


This might be a good thing.

Morning all.
We came back from Easter hols arriving at Westbury just before midnight last night, travelling from the Trowbridge direction.  Glad to see the traffic lights removed from the new roundabout, but I have to say, as it is ATM  with no lighted bollards, no street lights and no road markings, it is an accident waiting to happen at night.  Even though I knew of the roundabout, in the dark it looks as if the road goes straight ahead and it would be so easy to be caught out.

I went that way to trowbridge this afternoon to have a look at whats been done.  Youre right about an accident waiting to happen . All of a sudden the van infront of me gutted out into the road and all i could see was kerb stones and fresh mud where a road used to be .so i followed suit . Thats one big ass roundabout just for a small housing estate. ( mind you , we do have some rather big ass lorries driving straight through town) It will be safer when there is lighting and the usual lit up direction plinths at the roundabout

I keep seeing comments that suggest no-one knows what is happening about progress towards a new PO in Westbury.

I chair a town council group that is looking into the matter and was dealing with a Post Office Ltd employee who handled the search and approval process. Unfortunately, that person left PO Ltd before Christmas and no-one seems to be available to talk to the town council at all now even though we have said that we might be interested in running a new PO if no-one else does (We cannot work any other way when using public finance ...).

My understanding is that the current position is that an existing business IS now proceeding with an application for a new PO with only 2 counters somewhere in Westbury. I sincerely hope it is in the town centre, but one of the suggested locations from one interested party was on the edge of the town. I don't know where the new location will be.

Thats good news . Lets hope it is in a more conveinent place this time.  Wonder if it 8s in the millhouse cafe opposite morrisons.. thwy have said on their fb page that they will be opening as something more useful.  So sounds good !

I havent driven that way for months so have got out of the habit. It was a nightmare going that way to take the other half to work.

The A350 through town is in a shocking state with subsidence potholes, surface breaking up. I see some cowboys turned up last week and chucked down some cold tarmac. If any other trades,men did work like that they would be prosecuted.

 So true  [app] ...  not done properly , even i can see that
