Amendment to 15 October Road Closure
In the interests of minimising disruption to local traffic and following discussions with Hampshire County Council, we have been able to withdraw the full night time road closure scheduled for Monday 15 October.
Minimal work, required to adjust the road markings at the Butts roundabout, will now be carried out either under temporary traffic lights or stop-go boards, for the short duration necessary. The work is scheduled to take place in the early hours of the morning, from around midnight to 1am.
The remainder of works originally planned for this road closure, will be combined with the following week’s night time works.
Over the next two weeks, we will begin work to remove the approach to and central traffic islands on the Butts twin roundabout.
Once removed, these areas will be temporarily resurfaced (during the night closure on 22/10/18) and traffic cones will delineate the roundabouts and correct route for vehicles to follow.
Starting on Monday 15 October, our phased approach will be as follows.
The southern approach island will be coned-off to allow the traffic island to be removed.
Give Way lines on the north west approach (ie from the Basingstoke direction) will be removed and set further back that night (as advised above).
Further adjustments will take place during the week, including the placing of cones around the southern roundabout central island and the two intermediate traffic islands, between the two roundabouts.
The current two-lane northbound system, will as a result be reduced to one lane in both directions around both roundabouts whilst the islands are removed.
On the successful completion of this work, we will proceed with further modifications to the arrangement (as illustrated below) to remove the traffic island from the north east (Butts Road) approach.
Thereafter, to turn right from Butts Road, it will be necessary to go around the southern roundabout and travel back up Butts Road, to turn left into Whitedown Lane, towards Basingstoke.
