Work is being undertaken in two phases:

Phase two will be the planing and
resurfacing of the road. This work is planned to start from Monday 12
March and is expected to take three weeks. This will require the full
closure of Bassett Avenue overnight between 8pm to 6am.
road access will be maintained during phase one, but during phase two,
only properties with no alternative routes will be permitted access
through the site.
In addition to resurfacing
the road, overgrown vegetation is being cleared from the shared footway
and cycleway. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained via
shared use pavement but cyclists will be asked to dismount where
temporary footway is provided around work on the pavement.

times. We are asking those affected to plan their journeys wherever
possible and allow extra time. Alternative routes will be signed.

alternative routes into the city via the M27 junctions 3 and 5. Inbound
(southbound) traffic reaching Chilworth Roundabout will be diverted via
Bassett Green Road and should expect delays at peak times. Please see the map online.
