Fordingbridge High Street to close for five weeks during resurfacing work

FORDINGBRIDGE High Street will close completely for two weeks next month for roadworks.

From mid-June, the route will initially close for two weeks, before night closures come into force for a further three weeks.

The work, part of Hampshire Highways Planned Maintenance programme, will see the road resurfaced, including the removal of the block paving in High Street, from Bridge Street to Normandy Way.

“Due to the impact the works will have on traffic and to minimise disruption, it will be necessary to carry out works during the first two weeks under a 24-hour continuous road closure, with working times between the hours of 7.30am and 6pm,” a notice said.

“The remaining three weeks of works will be undertaken at night between the hours of 8pm and 6am, with the road reopened to traffic outside of working hours.”

Residents and businesses nearby are set to receive a letter detailing the works, as there may be some noise disturbance overnight.

“HCC are aware of the issues created by night working and will endeavour to keep noise levels reduced whenever possible,” the notice added.

Exact dates will be confirmed several weeks before the work gets underway, with pedestrian access maintained at all times.
