Description:
The A350 is a north-south primary route in southern England, that runs from the M4 motorway in Wiltshire to Poole in Dorset. Starting at junction 17 of the M4 motorway north of Chippenham it goes past the small village of Lacock and then through the towns of Melksham, Westbury, Warminster, Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum, ending in Poole beside Poole Harbour, an English Channel port There have been many bypasses built along the A350, including at Shaftesbury in the 1950s, Chippenham, Warminster, Blandford Forum and most recently south of Melksham at Semington. Most parts of the route are single carriageway but some of the new bypasses are dual carriageway.

However, parts of the road - particularly the section between Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum - remain unimproved; in at least one location the road is not wide enough to allow two lorries to pass safely, and the remainder of the Shaftesbury-Blandford stretch is narrow with several dangerous blind corners.
