DRIVERS in and around Andover will have seven National Highways road closures to watch out for.

And one of them is expected to cause severe delays – with motorists facing a wait of at least 30 minutes. Another three will cause moderate delays of between 10 minutes and half an hour.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that seven closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:

• A303, from 7pm December 6 to 6am December 19, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A303 both directions Amesbury Road, Multi-way traffic signals for BT.

• A34, from midnight, February 1 to 11.59pm December 31, slight delays (under 10 minutes): abnormal Load - Swansea to Southampton.

• A34, from midnight, July 1 to 11.59pm December 31, slight delays (under 10 minutes): abnormal load - Southampton to Cumbria.

• A303, from 9pm December 4 2023 to 6am February 16 2024, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A303 both directions Parkhouse to M3, slip road and lane closures for signage work.

And a further three closures will begin over the next two weeks:

• A303, from 8pm December 11 to 6am December 20, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A34 both directions Bullington to Highclere, carriageway and lane closures for structures inspection.

• A34, from 8pm December 12 to 6am December 13, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A34 northbound, Three Maids to Sutton Scotney Services, Lane closure for sign maintenance.

• A303, from 8pm December 13 to 6am December 18, severe delays (more than 30 minutes): A303 eastbound, Cowdown Lane to Upper Bullington, Lane closure and diversion for Hampshire County Council.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
