A31 Operation Resilience – *latest* 17 July 2020


W970 – A31 Alresford Road (Rodfield Lane), Ovington – Carriageway Resurfacing

As part of Operation Resilience, Hampshire County Council’s programme to make Hampshire’s roads more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and heavy traffic, this letter is to advise of upcoming carriageway resurfacing works on A31 Alresford Road eastbound, at its junction with Rodfield Lane and Ovington Park Lane.

The works are programmed to start 28th July 2020 and are expected to last for 3 nights, during which time the eastbound carriageway between the Percy Hobbs and Lady Croft roundaboubts will be closed to vehicular traffic, between the hours of 20:00hrs and 06:00hrs.

The above timescales are weather dependent, any significant changes to the scheduled dates will be made clear on the yellow sign boards located at the works limits.

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, if your property or business is located off of the eastbound carriageway we are unable to guarantee vehicular access during working hours.

The surfacing operation uses a separate bitumen layer in addition to the new asphalt carriageway surface. In order to avoid potential injury or damage, please do not walk across the carriageway during the works unless directed by a member of the workforce.

Thank you for your co-operation and please accept my apologies for any inconvenience these works may cause you.

If you need more information please email roads@hants.gov.uk
