President of the Hungerford Royal British Legion and a District Councillor. “His often controversial views always had the best interests of the town in mind and he could deliver against the fiercest odds. “I was delighted to introduce him and his daughter to the Norwegian Ambassador last year who recognised his late wife’s major contribution to the Allies’ war effort during WW2. “That, of course is a completely separate story: perhaps your columnist Chapman Pincher might elaborate?”

The Hungerford/Marlborough Adviser, Friday, September 21 to 28, 2012

HUNGERFORD ROADWORKS SCHEDULE SEPT. 24 TO SEPT. 28 Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th - 7pm to 11pm - Junction of A338 (Bridge Street) and A4 (Charnham Street) Over two nights, we will remove the old surface, adjust the level of ironworks (ie manhole covers and drains), resurface and re-mark the white/yellow lines. Because of the tight junction layout and lack of working space for our machinery, we have to close both the A338 and the A4 (divert via Charnham Park). Access to Tesco and the side roads and local properties along Bridge Street will therefore be from the south. Traffic marshals will be present at key locations. Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th - 7pm to 11pm - A338 between Park Street and Church Street Monday - remove old surface Tuesday - adjust ironworks This work will take place later on in the evening when traffic levels are lower. The road will NOT be closed, but traffic will be controlled manually by the traffic marshals. Traffic may be held for a few minutes at critical times during the work, so there may be some delays. Wednesday - resurface and white/yellow lines. The resurfacing work WILL require a closure and therefore access to Tesco and Bridge Street will be from the north only.

Thursday 27th and Friday 28th, continuing into the following week - A338 High Street/Salisbury Road - 9.30am to 4pm We will now switch to daytime working to remove the old surface, adjust ironworks and resurface the A338 between Park Street and Priory Road. This is a fairly long piece of road which will be split up into short manageable sections each day. The A338 will remain open, but controlled under temporary traffic lights. Some delays will therefore be inevitable, so I would encourage drivers to allow extra time for their journey or seek a suitable alternative route. However, traffic marshals will be constantly monitoring traffic levels and manually controlling the traffic lights to balance the traffic in both directions. Onstreet parking will be restricted during working hours.
