MAJOR work to transform one of Havant’s busiest roads will begin next week.

Work on revamping Park Road North starts on Monday.

The £600,000 scheme will move on to improvements in Park Road South about a month later.

Work includes widening the pavement in Park Road North and providing a new toucan crossing in West Street.

Steve Mountain, special projects engineer for Havant Borough Council, said: ‘I can now confirm that the contract has been let to Caroway Contractors Ltd of Rowlands Castle.’

The bus lay-by outside McDonald’s will be removed.

And new water design railings will be built at Bosmere Pond.

A meeting has been organised for businesses to hear more about the project. It takes place at The Plaza at 6pm on April 10.
