Update on Beaulieu Road Section of  Works

Thank you for your patience during the pause in works while the technical issues have been addressed and options developed to minimise the impact of completing these works, both in terms of overall duration and temporary traffic management.

Construction works will resume along the Beaulieu Road section from 8 April 2024 with a scheduled completion date of late Spring 2024. The works will involve widening the footway on Beaulieu Road and constructing an uncontrolled crossing point on Watermans Lane.

A closure of Watermans Lane will be in place to maximise the work areas to reduce the timescales to complete these improvement works. The closure will be in place for approximately three weeks with effect from 8 April 2024.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the works. There will be two-way temporary traffic lights in place on Beaulieu Road from 8 April for three weeks and these temporary lights will become 3-way when works are undertaken at the junction of North Road, Beaulieu Road and at Merrimeade Parade for approximately three weeks.

Residents and emergency vehicle access to properties will be maintained at all times during the closure. Please view the diversion route plan.

During the closure of Watermans Lane, access will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists.

Please view the  traffic management table providing information on the construction works, location and dates.  (The programme maybe subject to change).  Please read the FAQs.
Please see progress photos for this scheme.

The construction works started on Monday 9 October and Milestone Infrastructure Ltd has been appointed to carry out the improvements to the Eling to Holbury Cycle route.  This scheme will link to the Redbridge Causeway to Eling cycle improvements scheme.

Works will take place Monday to Friday, permitted working hours between 8am to 6pm and Saturday 8am to 2pm if necessary.
