A303 Thruxton (Hampshire) - Weekend and Overnight Closures
Work to improve journeys by refurbishing the bridges that carry the A303 over local roads near Thruxton and at Picket Twenty (Andover) is progressing well.
This is a reminder that the following closures are scheduled to take place over the next week:
Friday 15 (9pm) though to Monday 18 (6am) September – full weekend closure of the A303 EASTBOUND carriageway from the A338 Parkhouse Cross junction to the A342 Hundred Acre junction
Monday 18 September (9pm to 6am) – overnight closure of the A303 WESTBOUND carriageway from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A342 Hundred Acre junction
Monday 18 September for 4 nights (9pm to 6am) – overnight closure of the A303 EASTBOUND carriageway from the A338 Parkhouse Cross junction to the A342 Hundred Acre junction
Friday 22 (9pm) through to Monday 25 (6am) September – full weekend closure of the A303 WESTBOUND carriageway from the A342 Hundred Acre junction to the A338 Parkhouse Cross junction
During the closures clearly signed diversions will be in place. Alternative routes will be signed further afield for these long distance drivers travelling between the London/east area and the West Country.
Significant delays are expected during these weekend closure periods, and it is advised that you plan ahead of your journey to allow for extra time or avoid this route where possible.
Works to Highways
Fly Tipping of Green Waste Brook/Way – Foundry Road
It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that fly tipping of green waste regularly occurs behind the laurel bushes along Foundry Rd near the footpath into the bottom of Brook Way. This is both illegal, can damage tree roots and potentially becomes the site for vermin nesting etc.
Please be aware of this and ask anyone seen dumping waste in our parish to stop. Grass cuttings and vegetation can be disposed of in garden composters or through the green waste service provided by TVBC.
Volunteers wanted by Test Valley Community Services
Tessa Makepeace has been appointed as the new Volunteer Development Officer.
