Advance notice Road Works - The Avenue (Hospital Bumpy Road)

11 September 2014 at 12:48

September & October

Work to repair and rebuild The Avenue - between the Lodge building and the Pumphouse Way roundabout – will commence middle of September.

Please be aware that this will mean occasional road closures and diversions.

The main construction works are subject to formal sign-off of planning conditions and technical design - which are being worked through over the next few weeks. In order to deliver the scheme in advance of the approaching poor weather season, enabling works are what will commence this week.

Over the next week, the geotechnical specialist will be digging large holes within the highway verge for the planned surface water soakaways. The works will generate some disruption to traffic e.g. temporary works traffic signals – but TW’s contractor will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.

Subject to technical approvals from Hampshire County Council’s Highways department – who will adopt The Avenue/Park Prewett Road (this section) once completed – the main construction works are expected to start in October.

However, it is worth highlighting now that the rebuilding of the road will require temporary closure of the road to two way traffic – for all but buses and emergency vehicles. Access routes into and out of Basingstoke and Parklands Hospitals and St Michael’s Hospice will be maintained but there will inevitable be some diversion to normal routes e.g. no access heading west into Rooksdown.
