Traffic warning for Winchester residents and commuters
Wednesday, 23 July 2014
As one of the key routes into Winchester is set to undergo works, Hampshire County Council is working closely with Bovis Homes to ensure access is maintained to homes, work and schools during their works.
Bovis Homes are starting work on a new access route to their Pitt Manor development which will mean road works along the stretch of Romsey Road, Winchester, between its junction with the A3090 Badger Farm Road and with Stanmore Lane and Kilham Lane from now for 15 weeks.
Hampshire County Council's Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, Councillor Seán Woodward, said:
Romsey Road is one of the key routes in and out of Winchester and as we all know, very busy during peak times. I would like to reassure residents and commuters that we are talking to Bovis Homes to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum. However, I would urge people to allow extra time for their journeys and seek alternative routes where possible.
While the access road is being constructed there will be four way temporary lights at the Kilham Lane/Stanmore Lane/Romsey Road junction as well as a westbound lane closure. During term times the road works will be limited to off-peak hours but then increased to 24 hours a day during the summer holidays. In addition, there will be full night-time closures in order to undertake the surfacing works.
