This time, the end is in sight, and even I believe it is.
Virgin are currently lowering the ducts that prevented the resurfacing works and the area that is opened up will be reinstated this weekend, and the lights taken down. They have a second 15m stretch of ducts to lower 50m to the north and will do this in a 3 day period early next week.
The final resurfacing is now planned to take place on the nights of the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th July at which point the roadworks in Horndean will end. I hope the residents on the road have been notified by Hampshire County Council and it will not be unbearably disruptive.
The new carriageway will be protected with a Section 58 order which prevents any roadworks for a period of 5 years unless they are urgent.
The end is in sight.
After a year of disruption, perhaps some sort of formal closing ceremony…
