Construction Traffic Rules

All construction traffic travelling to and from the Wichelstowe development must use the approved routes for construction vehicles, which are shown on the map below.


Construction Route Update 3

The Wichelstowe developers require all contractors and sub-contractors working on the site to adhere to these agreed routes, which are designed to minimise nuisance for residents living in the surrounding communities.

Detailed records are maintained of the vehicle registration number, date and time of all visits made to the construction sites. The developers will take the appropriate action against any contractors/suppliers who are found to be flouting the rules – including, if necessary, banning them from the site.

If you believe that Wichelstowe construction traffic is travelling on local routes that have not been approved, please let us know as soon as possible.

You can do this by filling out the form below and emailing it to us. Please complete as much of the form as you can. This will help us to identify whether or not a Wichelstowe contractor is operating the vehicle. It will normally only be possible to trace the vehicle with a full registration number.
