Swaythling Arch


  • Where: Stoneham Way and Wide Lane
  • When: Monday 27 April 2020 for up to three weeks.
  • What: Add anti-skid surfacing, replace old crash barriers and undertake remedial works to Wide Lane

Latest News

Works to install the anti-skid surfacing and install a section of crash barrier were completed as planned before the Coronavirus started to affect our works. We then prioritised essential road maintenance in case we became unable to operate. However the situation has stabilised to an extent and we are more confident that our supply chain will support us to complete these planned works.

The new timeline for these works has been set out below.

At this time construction work is exempt from the latest Government guidance and we are currently working to ensure essential maintenance works are prioritised. This is an evolving situation, for the latest information please follow the council coronavirus updates.

As part of finishing works to Stoneham Way and Wide Lane we will be carrying out some overnight and daytime works as follows, see also map below.
