Along the B3073 from Hurn towards the Blackwater West Junction, we’ve removed the old footpath and installed a new and improved shared cycleway and footpath. These works will be completed next week and include the installation of a new retaining wall.
Work has also been completed on the two new embankments, which are now supporting the widening of the B3073 on both sides at the Blackwater West Junction. In this area, on the south-west side of the B3073, the road has been widened and new barriers installed. A temporary surface is currently in operation. We are currently working on the opposite side of the junction, mirroring the works that have already been completed.
From next week (Monday 14 October to Friday 18 October), we will be carrying out overnight surfacing works. Closures will be between 8pm and 6am each night. They include a full closure of the B3073 Blackwater West to Hurn Roundabout and A338 northbound off slip onto the B3073 every night.
All diversions will be signposted, however road users are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journey’s..
