Otterbourne Hill will be subject to overnight closures for the next four weeks for essential works starting tonight (February 17).
Every evening until March 16 Otterbourne Hill will be closed 8pm to 6am from its junction with Winchester Road to its junction with Kiln Lane and Main Road, with a signed diversion in place. The road will be open as usual during the day and at weekends.
Councillor Rob Humby, HCC Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said:
“These essential works have been carefully planned and are weather dependent. I would like to reassure local residents that we will do all we can to minimise disturbance and disruption.
“Looking after Hampshire’s extensive road network is one of our top concerns. Our planned maintenance programme, Operation Resilience, is a long-term strategy designed to ensure Hampshire’s highways network is more resilient to the impact of heavy traffic and severe weather. The programme sees additional investment 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 for Hampshire’s council taxpayers.”
Residents who require further information about these works are asked to call 0300 555 1388.
