MOTORISTS are being warned about four nights of overnight roadworks on a busy road.

As part of Hampshire County Council’s works programme, road resurfacing work will be taking place overnight on the A32 Fareham Road, Gosport from Rowner Road roundabout to Heritage Way.

The works are expected to start on Tuesday, May 15 and to last four nights.

The road will remain open throughout the works with temporary traffic lights in use from 8pm each evening until 6am the following morning.

The operation began a year ago and aims to include the resurfacing of around 250 roads, together with drainage work and improvements to pavement surfaces.

Councillor Mel Kendal, who is in charge of transport matters at the council, said the council would work to try to minimise inconvenience.

‘This long-term strategy is a substantial shift from reactive to planned maintenance, which is much more cost-effective in the long run,’ he said.

‘We will do our very best to keep disruption to a minimum and ask people to bear with us during any inconvenience.’
