Essential works to be carried out on Bishopstoke Road, Eastleigh

Hampshire County Council will be carrying out essential repairs to the bridge on Bishopstoke Road this autumn

Oct 25 2019

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.”
 
As well as repairing four bridge joints, the carriageway will also be resurfaced.
 
Work is due to take place between the pedestrian crossing just east of Dutton Lane to the Romsey Road/Station Hill roundabout overnight from Monday 4 November until
 
Thursday 14 November from 9pm – 6am. No work will take place at weekends and the road will be reopened each day to minimise disruption.
 
The road will be closed during the overnight repairs and a signed diversion route will be in place.
