Please be aware that for the next fourteen weeks or so, access to Chilworth from the Stoneham direction may be problematic. There are major works at the junctions of Stoneham Lane, Stoneham Way and Thomas Lewis Way. Full details are on Southampton City Council’s website, here.
Chilworth residents may be interested to know about some motorway closures that will take place soon to facilitate resurfacing and ‘smartening’ of the M27. As you’ll see from the letter here, diversions will push traffic onto the A27 through Chilworth. The poor standard of English grammar employed leaves the message open to interpretation. The first two closures are clearly overnight lane closures only. It’s not entirely clear that the subsequent four week complete closure eastbound and four week complete closure westbound are also overnight only. We must hope so, or else February and March would be good months to be away on a cruise!
