Ancient site study is postponed
Archaeological Work along the A419 near Swindon, which was due to take place next week, has been postponed.

Workers were due to investigate whether a noise fence, to dull traffic sounds, will damage an important ancient site.

The Highways Agency plans to put up the structure on a verge at Covingham which is protected by English Heritage.

The site is designated as a scheduled ancient monument for the Roman town of Durocornovium. The work is now due to take place later in the autumn.
