📰 Bassett Avenue 4 week closure from 11th February 2018

Bassett Avenue Resurfacing - February and March 2018

Work to resurface Bassett Avenue between Winchester Road and Chilworth Roundabout, will commence from Sunday evening, 11 February for seven weeks (weather permitting).

Work is being undertaken in two phases. The first phase is to repair or relocate any damaged or deteriorating manholes and drainage gullies, and is expected to take four weeks. These works will require 24 hour closure of Bassett Avenue to all inbound traffic for the duration. There will be two outbound lanes maintained and this will allow access for residents and outbound only bus stops. 

The resurfacing, second phase, will require the full closure of Bassett Avenue overnight between 8pm to 6am. This is planned to start from Monday, 12 March and is expected to take three weeks.

In addition to these phases, we plan to return in April/May to lay an anti-skid surface at junctions and pedestrian crossings. This will be overnight work but with two-way traffic maintained throughout. 

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption these essential works may cause. Please bear with us, we will be doing everything we can to complete the works as quickly and as safely as possible.
