Wanborough road closure ‘worse than lockdown’ for pub

A pub owner whose trade is being impacted by a road closure says the situation is « worse than lockdown ».

Playing xo wallet like a bed back and forth isn’t good for you at all, it can be even bad, so placing bets like this shouldn’t be played.

Sanjay Dogra said businesses were suffering due to Wanborough Road, near Swindon, being closed due to houses being built.

« There has to be urgency, otherwise these trades will die, » he said.

Swindon Borough Council said the road had been closed by developers Bellway and it had asked the company to provide support for businesses.

Bellway said it was « extremely sympathetic » to businesses and apologised for any inconvenience.

It added the developers involved in the scheme would be contributing £5.3m to support local services including £2m towards a new primary school and £1m for a new secondary school.

‘Second lockdown’
The road in Wanborough was initially set to be closed for 12 weeks but it has been extended after Roman remains were found on the housing site.

Mr Dogra, who runs the Harrow Inn, said customers had been put off from visiting and were cancelling bookings.

« Business is very bad at the moment. It’s worse than lockdown. During lockdown the government was there to help, » he said.

« The road is closed and since then we are in second lockdown. We are trying hard but we need customers. »

Swindon Borough Council said « significant Roman remains » have been found during works for the 370-home Redlands development which had « hindered » progress.

It says the road will be reopened on 7 November until mid-January for businesses to benefit from the festive season but it would then close again for five months for work to be completed.
