Trowbridge link road construction completed with the help of Persimmon Homes

05 January 2016

A £5.3 million pound project to reduce traffic around Trowbridge has been officially handed over to Persimmon Homes and Cuddy Construction.

Persimmon Homes and Cuddy Construction oversaw the complex planning, design and construction of the new Leap Gate Link Road near the East of Trowbridge, which has taken four years to construct.

Representatives from Persimmon Homes and Cuddy Construction gathered this week to mark the completion of the 2km road, with a date to be announced by Wiltshire Council on its opening in the new year.

The road is the second phase of easing congestion in the community and will connect to the recently opened Hilperton Relief Road. It will give access to the Trowbrige development from West Ashton Road in the south and the A361 Hilperton Drive/Devizes Road from the north.

News of the bypass completion is a welcome boost to the community where Persimmon Homes Wessex has its Castle Mead development.

Peter Kenny, project/adoption manager for Persimmon Homes Wessex, spoke of his delight at the new road.

He said: "This project is an essential resource for the community and it is with great pride that we are able to deliver this road to the people of Trowbridge.

The Leap Gate Link Road gives the necessary support to the existing infrastructure and it has allowed for much needed homes to be built in the area. The road follows on from a new school that opened 18 months ago along with a new shopping area planned for spring 2016."
