A34 TRUNK ROAD - BULLINGTON CROSS - LITCHFIELD
TEMPORARY TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS
Notice is hereby given that Highways England Company Limited intends to make an Order on the A34 Trunk Road in the County of Hampshire, under Section 14(1)(a) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 because works are proposed to be executed on the road. The effect of the Order would be to authorise:-
1) the phased overnight closure of (see details below);
a) both carriageways of the A34 between Bullington Cross (A303) and Litchfield;
b) all of the roads leading to and from the above carriageways; and
c) all of the side roads at junction with the above carriageways; and
2) the 24-hour closure of all of the lay-bys adjacent to the carriageways in 1)a) above during their closure.
These measures would be in the interests of road safety while contractors working on behalf of SSE undertake the installation of a high voltage cable. It is expected that the work would last for approximately 4 weeks starting on or after Monday 19th April 2021. The overnight closures would take place between 21:00 and 06:00 (maximum period). The main closure will be the on-slip at Whitchurch only, from the 19th of April until the 9th of May, followed by a scheduled one night on 15th May with all closures in force. The Order would come into force on 17 April 2021 and have a maximum duration of eighteen months, ceasing when the works are complete. Traffic affected by the closures would be diverted as follows:
a) closure of on-slip at Whitchurch: via Winchester Street, the B4000, B3048, and the A303.
b) full carriageway closure, through traffic: by using the A303, A3093 and A343 in either direction.
Access in and out of Firgo Farm would be permitted under works supervision. The temporary closures and diversion routes would be clearly indicated by traffic signs when they are in operation during the works period.
