Lower Common Road – Temporary Road Closure for Resurfacing Update

As part of the programme of works being undertaken by Operation Resilience Hampshire County Council Highways will shortly be undertaking carriageway resurfacing works on Lower Common Road, West Wellow between A36 junction and The Drove.

The works are programmed to start on 4 October 2016 and are expected to last for two days. In order to undertake the works safely it will be necessary to close the road.

Prior to the carriageway resurfacing works, they will be undertaking minor kerbing and footway repair works.

These works are programmed to start on 5 September 2016 and are expected to last for two weeks. These works will be done using temporary traffic signals in sections along the road.

Information signs advising road users of the works will be erected before the start of works.
