Roadworks will start on Monday

Vistry will be resurfacing the carriageway, installing a pedestrian crossing on London Road, resurfacing the footpath and altering kerbing and drainage nearby.

It is hoped that in the long-term, these roadworks will benefit pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike.

Technical director Richard Drury said: ‘We agreed to carry out these vital road improvements as part of the process to secure planning approval for our development at Horndean. The exact detail of the works has been set out after close liaison with the highways department and East Hampshire District Council.

‘As part of the works, we will be installing a pedestrian crossing on London Road near the turning for Old Brewery Way which will allow pedestrians to cross the road more safety. To enable blind or partially sighted people to make use of the crossing, tactile paving will be laid.

‘The damaged carriageway surfacing will be replaced on London Road and the approaches to the roundabout and areas of footway on London Road will be resurfaced with tegular block paving in keeping with the conservation area.’

Vistry has apologised in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused by the roadworks, Mr Drury added.
