Phases of work
Phase 1: Mansbridge spur road footway improvements - Monday 27 July
We will be widening and resurfacing the footway along the spur road that comes out onto Mansbridge Road. An official pedestrian crossing point will also be implemented onto the spur road.
During this phase, pedestrians will be given a route around our works area and back onto the existing footway.
Phase 2: North side of crossing island - Tuesday 4 August
We will begin the construction of the proposed crossing island that will go across Mansbridge Road. For phase 2 we will be working on the north side of the footway and road.
Phase 3: South side of crossing island - Friday 7 August
We will then move to the south side of the crossing island and continue its construction.
Phase 4: Bus stop relocation, new kerbs - Wednesday 12 August
We will be relocating the Bus stop along Mansbridge Road that heads east, as well as constructing new kerbs around this section of the footway.
Vehicle access along Mansbridge Road will be maintained throughout but for the duration of phase 2, 3 and 4, temporary lights and a temporary pedestrian crossing will be in place along Mansbridge Road, so drivers may experience delays.
Mansbridge Road Bridge and Mansbridge Road Resurfacing
As part of our essential roads maintenance around Southampton, we will be undertaking works to resurface the Bridge on Mansbridge Road. This will require a full closure of the Bridge for up to 3 weeks from Monday 10 August. The diversion route can be found below and via this link.
Following this, we will be resurfacing sections of Mansbridge Road outside the pub and around the newly constructed crossing island. This will require a closure of Mansbridge Road.
