In preparation for the installation of the ducts for the cables, we are now making temporary changes to Stubbington Lane and Crofton Avenue.
Our work will consist of digging below the roads to carry out the excavation of trenches and joint bays, installation of ducts for the cables in the trenches, backfilling and reinstatement, allowing us to be able to pull through the cables when they arrive onshore later this year and not disturb these roads again.
On the 28th January 2019 we closed a section of Crofton Avenue where it meets Stubbington Lane. We have put in place a diversion down Sea Lane to maintain access to nearby homes and Monks Hill beach car park. Whilst the construction activities along Crofton Avenue will only take approximately a week, in order to better manage the traffic on Stubbington Lane the diversion will be in place until 24th February 2019.
On the 4th February 2019, we also closed one lane at a time of Stubbington Lane for a three-week period.
Upon completion of this work, the construction areas will be reinstated and no equipment will be visible above the ground. We have worked closely with Hampshire County Council to schedule as much of this work as possible to fall outside the school term period.
Regular updates will be provided on a weekly basis as this work progresses. Thank you for your continued cooperation. For further information, please contact us on 0800 0194 576 or email email@example.com
