Decision details

HTW-07-21: Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 - The County of Wiltshire (Meerut Road, Tidworth) (Prohibition of Right Hand Turn) Order 2020 and The County of Wiltshire (Pennings Road, Tidworth) (Prohibition of Left Hand Turn) Order 2020

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider one objection and two representations of support in connection with the proposed introduction of prohibited turns at the junction and the A338 Pennings Road and Meerut Road (see Appendix 2). The proposed prohibited turns are the left turn into Meerut Road from the A338, and the right turn from Meerut Road to the A338 (see plan at Appendix 3). One further objection initially received from a resident was later withdrawn but is included in Appendix 2. This was because the resident initially thought that the right turn into Meerut Road was being prohibited, but subsequently realised that this was not what was being proposed. 


I approve that the proposal to introduce the two prohibited turns at the A338/Meerut Road junction in Tidworth be implemented as advertised.


This decision was published on 2 March 2021 and will come into force on 10 March 2021.          


Reasons for the decision:

The introduction of two prohibited turns at the A338 Pennings Road / Meerut Road junction is to formalise changes introduced with the permitted highway improvement scheme affecting this junction and the Ordnance Road and St Andrews Road junctions with the A338 to the north. The relevant planning application reference is 18/03728/FUL, which was given permission on 6 July 2018. The prohibited turns are necessary to create an efficient, high capacity traffic signal layout at the A338/Meerut Road junction and, at the same time, provide a good level of service for pedestrians/cyclists at the various pedestrian controlled crossing points created through the junction change.  


Alternative options considered:



(i)               Implement the proposals as advertised.


(ii)              Not implement the proposals.


(iii)       Implement the proposals with amendments

Other reasons / organisations consulted

Consultations have been undertaken with the Fire Service, Police and Ambulance Service, and also with the relevant bus companies, the Town Council and the Local Member.  Advertisements have been posted in the local press and notices were posted in prominent positions at the site (see Appendix 1).
