Update on A303 Solstice Park crash

Published by Jack Deery at 9:53am 11th September 2019. (Updated at 6:37am 12th September 2019)

Most of the road was reopened at 11:40pm last night (Tuesday 10th September), but a lane closure remains.

Police were called to a collision at the Countess Roundabout near Amesbury at around 3:10pm yesterday afternoon. 

The road was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and cleared the scene.

Eastbound reopened straight away, while westbound was opened just before midnight. 

But one lane of the westbound carriageway remains closed for further safety inspections.

HOW LONG IS THE LANE LIKELY TO BE CLOSED?

Highways England has confirmed to Spire FM News that the lane closure is due to the carriageway being 'too slippery and dangerous' for traffic to use.

A 200 metre section of the road has been affected by a fuel spillage.

We're told the road will be resurfaced tonight (Wednesday 11th September).

The road's expected to be fully re-opened by tomorrow morning (Thursday 12th).

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DRIVERS?

Two lorries collided on the main road and the male driver of one of the vehicles was taken to Salisbury District Hospital by land ambulance. 

The air ambulance was also called to the scene, but wasn't needed.

There is no update on his condition at this stage. 

The other driver wasn't hurt.
