A303 / A358 corridor improvements

In 2014 the Government announced its intention to improve the A303 and A358 - one of the most direct strategic routes between London and the south east and the south west - to create a high quality dual carriageway link between the two areas.

A programme of 8 improvement schemes was identified. These are outlined the booklet ‚ÄėThe case for the A303/A358 corridor'. The first 3 to be delivered are:

Collectively these schemes will help to deliver a free-flowing road, making journeys easier while also addressing issues with rat running through towns and villages along the corridor, and improving safety.

In early 2018 we held consultations for each of these schemes. To find out more about what is currently happening with them, please click on the individual scheme pages below.
