Dear Stakeholder,

A34 Beacon Hill to Litchfield (Hampshire) – Southbound Resurfacing

I am writing to advise that Kier Highways, on behalf of Highways England, will be resurfacing a section of the A34 southbound carriageway from Beacon Hill to Litchfield, to ensure the network/structure remains in a safe condition for road users.  This work has been scheduled in the past but postponed due to circumstances outside of our control.

Work has been scheduled to start on Wednesday 10 January 2018 and is expected to take up-to three weeks to complete (Monday to Friday only).

In order to carry out the work as efficiently and safely as possible, we will be closing fully the A34 southbound carriageway from the A343 Wash Common/Highclere junction to Whitchurch.  During these closures a clearly signed diversion will be in place from Newbury via the A339 towards Basingstoke, then west along the A30 and A303.

Please be aware that these works have been carefully programmed but are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances – please check the yellow signs placed in advance at the junction for confirmation of the closures dates/timings.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption caused during our work; if  you have any questions, or if you’d like you know about our work please contact us on 0300 123 5000 or email info@highwaysengland.co.uk

Yours faithfully,  Kathryn Blofield

Communications Coordinator
