Concerns in Titchfield over East Street closures


Hampshire County Council’s planned work on resurfacing East Street on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd June has worried residents about gaining access to their homes during the work.

It seems the council no longer write to all homes in the street advising them of the work.

On the Saturday there are two weddings at St Peter’s and fears are that guests will be unable to find places to park due to the congestion.

Road Closure over Weekend of 1st & 2nd June

East Street, Titchfield – Carriageway Resurfacing Works

As part of Operation Resilience, Hampshire County Council’s programme to make Hampshire’s roads more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and heavy traffic, this letter is to advise of upcoming carriageway resurfacing works on East Street from its junction with Titchfield Hill to the junction with Southampton Hill. 

The resurfacing works are programmed to start Saturday 1st June and are expected to last for 2 days. During which time the road will be closed to vehicular traffic from approximately 09:00 to 16:30hrs. The road will be open during the evenings. Access to the High Street will be maintained via South Street throughout the works.

The above timescales are weather dependent, any significant changes to the scheduled dates will be made clear on the yellow sign boards located at the works limits.

In order to help us to complete the work as quickly as possible, please ensure that no vehicles are parked on the road or in the laybys on the days of the resurfacing.

Please be aware any vehicles left parked on the road that prevent the works taking place, face the risk of being removed.

For your safety and that of our workforce, we are unable to guarantee vehicular access to and from your property during working hours. Pedestrian access will always be available.

The surfacing operation uses a separate bitumen layer in addition to the new asphalt carriageway surface. In order to avoid potential injury or damage, please do not walk across the carriageway during the works unless directed by a member of the workforce.

Thank you for your co-operation and, if you need more information regarding these works, please call our contact centre on 0300 555 1388.
