Some drivers ignored signs
Despite the multiple signs many drivers were still trying to go up the hill but were having to be turned at The Rookery.
Several inches are being removed from the surface before the new tarmac is laid as part of Hampshire County Council’s Operation Resilience.
Some missed their buses
Some bus passengers were also caught out as Stagecoach could not use the Station loop, although some waiting at the White Hart managed to be seen by the driver. Others who were waiting in Bell Street completely missed their bus.
“Why couldn’t Stagecoach put a notice at the bus stop” said one disgruntled passenger who was waiting in Bell Street.
The works in Newbury Street are set to continue tomorrow, while on Sunday it is believed that the stretch of London Street between the Square and Test Road may be closed (check with Council as that closure may move to the 21st). This is to allow the section outside the White Hart/Town hall to be resurfaced.
Has anyone noticed anything about the signage on this route at Dirty Corner?
