DRIVERS travelling eastbound along the A303 are being urged to plan ahead with their routes due to an overnight road closure.

A section of the A303 from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A34 at Bullington Cross will be closed overnight from 9pm until 6am.

The closure will be in place from Monday, July 3 until Thursday, July 6 each day, with resurfacing works taking place along the carriageway.

A diversion will be navigating traffic along the A3057 to Stockbridge and the A30 towards Sutton Scotney, with traffic able to pick up the A303 again at Bullington Cross, before continuing eastbound. 

Traffic going west will not be affected by the road closures. The closure comes weeks after similar resurfacing works had taken place between A34 Bullington Cross to the Micheldever Junction, from 9pm on Friday, June 23 through to 6am on Monday, June 26.
