DRIVERS in and around Basingstoke and Deane will have four National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

And three of them are expected to cause delays of between 10 minutes and half an hour.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

• M3, from 9am November 28 2023 to 5pm January 6 2024, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M3 southbound, junction 6 to junction 7, hard shoulder closure for barrier repairs.

And a further three closures will begin over the next two weeks:

• A303, from 8pm December 4 to 6am December 13, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M3 northbound, junction 7, entry slip road and lane closure for drainage works, diversion route via National Highways Network.

• M3, from 8pm December 6 to 6am December 8, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M3 northbound, junction 7, exit slip and lane closure for barrier repairs.

• A303, from 8pm December 11 to 6am December 20, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A34 both directions Bullington to Highclere, carriageway and lane closures for structures inspection.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
