Good news for residents:
The surface repairs on Otterbourne Road between Bushfield Roundabout and the junction with Southdown Road, scheduled for 5 November 2012, have been replanned and will not now involve complete closure of the road.
Hampshire County Council tell us:
in agreement with the contractor, a different method of working has been found that allows the use of temporary traffic signals as opposed to a road closure. The works will also not begin until after 09:30 to allow commuters and the school to pass without delay
As soon as we have more information about the works or impact on bus services, we will post it here.
The County Council website has a page on this Operation Resilience, though at the time of writing it doesn’t have any details about the works planned for the Otterbourne Road.
