As part of the road adoption process, the resurfacing works on Elvetham Heath Way are programmed to start on the 9th September 2019 and are expected to last for up to 10 nights (weather permitting). Hampshire Highways will be resurfacing the 2.2km stretch of Elvetham Heath Way from the Ancells Farm end to the Turner’s Way roundabout and this will bring the road up to an adoptable standard.
During these works sections of the road will be closed to traffic, from approximately 8pm – 6am. The work is being carried out at night in order to minimise disruption and the road will be open outside of these hours and at weekends.
Hampshire County Council has been working closely with Persimmon Homes and has agreed to resurface Elvetham Heath Way at Persimmon’s expense on behalf of the developer. Once the resurfacing of the road is completed, it will be adopted by Hampshire County Council. Attention will then turn to the remaining residential roads off the spine road to get them through the adoption process.
It is the responsibility of developers to ensure their roads are up to a specified standard so that Hampshire County Council can take on the maintenance without additional burden on the council taxpayer. This is usually done under a legal agreement which outlines the standards the County Council requires.
