Overnight works will be carried out on Thomas Lewis Way next week at the junction with St Denys Road.— Southampton Travel (@scchighways) October 19, 2022
These works will require closures which are detailed in our further tweets below ⬇️
Work is subject to good weather conditions, and it’s thought that pedestrian access will be maintained.
Drivers will no doubt heave a sigh of relief when roadworks are complete and waiting at temporary lights at the busy junction finally comes to an end. The overall project, on “upgrading the traffic signals and creating safer pedestrian crossing points and a new cycleway”, was expected to last 15 weeks from August 22 – by our reckoning taking us into December.
In similar news, an ominous sign westbound by the McCarthy Stone development on Cobden Bridge heralds unspecified “work starting here” on Monday (Oct 24) for eight days. One.network, a “road event” service that maps city works and is pointed to by the council, tells us that “Works Descriptions are not published by Southampton City Council”! We are told, however, that there could be “some carriageway incursion” but “delays are unlikely”. [See our subsequent piece here for information about work due to start at the end of October]
• Reconstruction and resurfacing work also starts from Monday (Oct 24) for around five weeks on Brookvale Road in Portswood. There will be phased road closures between Portswood Road and Westwood Road with a diversion in place.
