Road Closed - The Avenue (Hospital Bumpy Road)

9 March 2015 at 10:48


Work to repair and rebuild The Avenue - between the Lodge building and the Pumphouse Way roundabout – has commenced.

Please be aware that this will mean the road being closed and diversions.

Access routes into and out of North Hampshire and Parklands Hospitals and St Michael’s Hospice will be maintained but there will inevitably be some diversion to normal routes e.g. no access heading west into Rooksdown and no vehicle access to Hospitals from A339.

It is hoped the road will re-open at the end of April 2015.

BUS ROUTE - changes

Route 4 / 4A - Loop around Park Prewett Road
