ROADWORKS which have had a major impact across Basingstoke will not be lifted today.

Worting Road has been closed since January 7 between the West Ham roundabout and the Worting Road roundabout was due to reopen on Friday.

However, due to the snow on Friday, the lifting of the works was put back and it was hoped the area would reopen today.

Hampshire County Council has now confirmed the closure will not be lifted today.

 The roadworks are to allow for a long-awaited flood alleviation scheme to be installed in Buckskin.
