WORK will start tomorrow on resurfacing a major trunk road in Hampshire.

Engineers from the Highways Agency will carry out the work on the A303 overnight from Thursday, May 29 to the morning of Wednesday, July 9.

It will take place on the A303 between the A34 junction at Bullington Cross and Overton Road, near Micheldever railway station.

Guy Watts, Highways Agency project sponsor, said: “The work will involve the complete resurfacing of the A303 in both directions, providing a new smoother road surface for drivers and maintaining safety by improving skid resistance.

“This means our infrastructure will continue to support the economy in Hampshire.”

Work will take place between 10pm and 6am with no work over weekends.

The first phase will see work carried out on the eastbound carriageway for eight nights. This will be followed by work on the westbound carriageway for 15 nights from Tuesday, June 10, and then back on to eastbound carriageway for six nights from Tuesday, July 1.

Diversions using the M3 and A33 will be in place.
