Delays ahead for 16 weeks

First published in News

MOTORISTS’ are warned to expect delays while engineers work on a £750,000 scheme to install traffic lights at a major road junction in Romsey.

Work started on Monday to install the lights and widen the junction of Cupernham Lane with Winchester Hill at Cupernham.

A signed diversion has been put in place while the work is carried out. And Hampshire’s highway chiefs expect the work, which includes putting in three lanes on the A3090 (Winchester Hill) between Romsey Hospital and the Cupernham Lane junction, to last up to 16 weeks.

An uncontrolled pedestrian crossing will also be installed on Winchester Hill.

Hampshire’s cabinet spokesman for the environment and transport Mel Kendal said: “We recognise that any roadworks can be frustrating for motorists and others but the road diversions will be clearly signed and managed and we ask people to be patient while the work is under way.”

I seriously hope they are some super smart traffic lights because the temporary lights at the moment are causing me to pick my son up late from school everyday. I finish work at 3pm in Totton and have to rush back and now I never make it on time.

Glad to see that the cost has dropped from the £800,000 quoted in a previous news item in this paper.
