The A303 east and westbound is closed in both directions as an HGV otherwise known as a lorry went up in flames today, Saturday, 3rd of August.
Police suggest that the section of the A303 will be closed for the remainder of the day while Highways England’s resources are used for a clean-up process.
Reports suggest that the closure is affecting traffic from Yeovil to Andover.
Highways England said, “UPDATE: #A303 east and westbound from #Chicklade to #Deptford will be closed for most of the day due to a complex recovery and road surface damage. Please plan ahead and consider alternate routes.”
One motorist said online, “Well… A303 is randomly closed without any warning or diversions signposted. So we’re here. With artic lorries and coaches”
