Resurfacing to close Portsmouth’s Eastern Road

TRAVEL: Delays due to broken down vehicle on A27

Have your say

ROAD works on Eastern Road will force drivers to find alternative routes for five nights.

Motorists are being asked to avoid a section of the busy road from Monday August 6, while Colas, Portsmouth City Council’s highways contractor, carries out resurfacing works.

From 8pm to 5.30am, northbound traffic will not be able to use Eastern Road from Tangier Road to Burffields Road. Southbound traffic will have reduced lanes in use during the works.

One diversion northbound will involve using Milton Road, Copnor Road, Burrfields Road, Dundas Lane, Airport Service Road and Eastern Road.

Steve Johns, Colas’s surfacing agent, said: ‘We will be keeping any disruption to a minimum while essential resurfacing work takes place.’
