Roadworks and maintenance are an essential part of keeping the road network and utility services both safe and serviceable but they can cause inconvenience too.
There are several planned works both in the pipeline and underway within the next few days (although dates can vary at short notice).
The ones we (website volunteers) know about include work on:
16th – 20th December: Gas connections in Wells Lane/Bell Street;
18th – 20th December: Southern Water works due to a leak in Bell Street;
18th – 20th December: Leaking footpath pipes in Winchester Street near the Square;
19th – 20th December: Southern Water carriageway repairs in London Street;
19th – 20th December: Southern Water carriageway repairs in Newbury Street.
Most of these are fairly minor and are not extensive, although ome may have some traffic light control and delays may be likely.
The best place we know of how to find out about such works is via Hampshire County Council who are the Highway authority.
