Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: “Looking after Hampshire’s extensive road network is one of our top priorities. Our planned maintenance programme, Operation Resilience, is a long-term strategy designed to ensure Hampshire’s road and bridge network is more resilient to the impact of heavy traffic and weather. The programme sees an additional investment of £10 million each year, using a variety of treatments to extend the life of highway infrastructure while at the same time getting the best value for money. These essential works have been carefully planned, and I would like to reassure local residents that we will do all we can to minimise disturbance and disruption.”
From Monday 27 July the works will be undertaken at night between 8pm and 6am and they are expected to last for two weeks, with temporary traffic management in place to protect the workforce. The road will be open as usual during the daytime and at weekends.
Details of the works, including any changes to the scheduled dates, e.g. due to adverse weather, will be clearly signed on yellow sign boards where the work is being carried out.
