Western Access Review

A desktop feasibility study of the Western Access serving Wichelstowe has been completed by Peter Brett Associates on behalf of Swindon Borough Council. The overall approach has been broadly based on the Department for Transport – Transport Analysis Guidance (WebTag) process which is recommended for the assessment of major highway and public transport schemes. The study has considered a number of bridge and tunnel options which cross both the M4 and the railway line. The study, and a supporting summary presentation, are provided below.

The deadline for feedback and comments on the study was the 31st July 2013.
