Major County Council road and transport improvement schemes
July 2014 Bovis Homes at Pitt Manor Romsey Road Winchester
Bovis Homes have started work on the major scheme for 200 houses just off Romsey Road, west of the junction with Stanmore Lane. Works affecting the road started at the beginning of the school holidays and will last until late November.
Temporary traffic lights will be in use along with occasional night time road closures. The County Council is working with Bovis homes and bus companies, schools and the emergency services in order to minimise the impact of these works. Further details are available on the Bovis Homes website:
M27 Junctions 3 and 5 and M3 Junction 6

Over 80,000 sets of essential works are carried out every year to maintain public utility and highways services. The vast majority of roadworks are undertaken by public utility companies (electricity, gas, water, cable services).
You can view a list or map of all works likely to cause disruption on a national website called roadworks.org
This lists all roadworks that are likely to have some impact on traffic flow.
