“Now we have confidence that effective social distancing can be achieved, we aim to use this quiet time on the roads to carry out more maintenance work, ready for when businesses and schools open up again. Our commitment to safe working remains, and I want to reassure Hampshire’s residents and business that we will do all we can to ensure the roads are ready for their return.”
