Chippenham is a market town in North West Wiltshire. The A350 has been moved to the west twice to bypass the town, the original route now the B4528. The modern bypass is only S2, but land has clearly been reserved for future widening.
To the east of the town, there is a huge area of north Wiltshire without a primary route, bounded by the M4, A346, A303/A36 and A350. After winding its way along modern re-alignments strewn with roundabouts, the A4 crosses this 'wilderness' to Marlborough, splitting the area north of Salisbury Plain in half.

Before the M4 opened, and Chippenham's Dual Carriageway link was built, the town was the terminus for both the A350 and A429. Conversely, the A420 used to pass through, rather than have the long gap revived at Swindon as it does now.
