Carriageway Investigation Works

Selborne Road, Selborne – Carriageway Investigation Works

Hampshire County Council have advised the following about road works due to take place next week.

In preparation for the carriageway resurfacing due to take place in the next couple of months, investigatory coring works to determine the structure of the carriageway are due to take place on the High Street, between Ketchers Field and Goslings Croft.

The works are programmed to start 18th January 2021 and are expected to last for up to 2 nights, during which time the road will be closed to through traffic between the hours of 20:00 – 06:00hrs. The road will be open outside of these hours.

As we are now approaching the winter months, inclement weather becomes more of an issue and works programmes are more susceptible to change. Whilst there is an allowance within the time periods shown above for delays, there may be times when we have to postpone works at very short notice; based on the latest weather forecasts, this can occur just prior to works commencing. We will always look to provide up to date information wherever we can, but sometimes these last minute decisions can be difficult to relay to the travelling public in a timely manner.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, works will be carried out ensuring safe working practices, and social distancing between site operatives and members of the public are maintained at all times. The appropriate traffic management will be in place to prevent any interaction.

For your safety and that of our workforce, we are unable to guarantee vehicular access to and from your property during the road closure. Should you need to make an essential journey, please contact a member of the workforce in advance and they will be able to advise if they can accommodate your request. Pedestrian access will be available at all times.
