Highways England have informed the council that they are nearing the end of the bridge repair work taking place at the Three Maids Hill junction, north of Winchester.
Work beneath the bridge is progressing well, and closures of the A34 northbound (between the exit and entry slip roads) will continue overnight until Monday 27 September (9pm to 6am, Monday to Friday only).
The final phase of these repairs will be to replace the joints in the bridge which carries the A272 over the A34 at the junction. For everyone’s safety, the following overnight closures will be in place:
• Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October (9pm to 6am) – closure of the A272 eastbound over the bridge, with a signed diversion via Bullington Cross junction.
• Friday 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October (9pm to 6am) – closure of the A272 westbound over the bridge, with a signed diversion via the Winnall roundabout.
If work isn’t fully completed over these weekends, Highways England will implement further closures on the nights of Friday 29, Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 October.
Highways England advise all motorists to stick to the signed diversion routes as they have been chosen with both suitability and safety in mind. They would also encourage drivers to stick to speed limits and follow appropriate signage to ensure the safety of fellow road users.
Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions and progression of other roadwork projects. Closures will be advertised on yellow signs placed in advance at the junction and on our South-East Twitter page (@HighwaysSEAST).
