Latest updates

Hampshire County Council has appointed B&M McHugh Limited to carry out drainage improvement works on Gascoigne Lane. This will alleviate the current flooding issues along Gascoigne Lane and Gilbert Street. The improvements will include the installation of new gullies along Gascoigne Lane and a new soakaway at the junction of Gascoigne Lane, Court Lane, and Gilbert Street.

Works started on Monday 10 June for approximately three weeks and the permitted working hours are between 7am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

To maximise safety for road users and the operators, temporary three-way lights are in place for up to two weeks at the junction of A31 / Gascoigne Lane. This will be followed by a ‘Give and Take’ arrangement along Gascoigne Lane at the junction of Gilbert Street / St. Andrew’s Lane.

Advanced warning signs were in place two weeks prior to the works starting, and access will be maintained for residents and emergency vehicles.

Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
