A341 Magna Road and Queen Anne Drive Resurfacing Scheme

In August 2017 the Department for Transport awarded us approximately £2.9M Challenge Fund for highways structural maintenance schemes to be carried out to some of our major roads. A key requirement was for this money to be spent by the end of March 2018. The Challenge Fund has enabled us to undertake far more work than we would otherwise be able to do.

The A341 including both Magna Road and Queen Anne Drive was identified along with a number of other locations where a structural maintenance scheme was required especially because of the condition and age of the existing surface and with regards to forthcoming building development in the area.

Please note that the signal junction at Knightons Lane is not be included as part of this work due to planned developer works scheduled for early 2018.

Description of the work

The scheme will consist of resurfacing the carriageway and the provision of new cycling facilities carried out in two separate phases.

Phase 1

At 7.30am on Monday 22nd January resurfacing works will commence on the A341 near Hamworthy Recreation Club. Work is planned to last 10 days and will head west to meet up with the new road surface near Harvey Road. This will complete the resurfacing element of this scheme after works were delayed before Christmas because one of the contractors suffered severe mechanical failure and was limited in the amount of work he was able to do.

Side road access will be generally available but some delays are inevitable and should be expected, local residents are referred to the information boards displayed at the junctions with details of the dates and times that work will be carried out next to them.
