Key Winchester route to close for six Sundays
3:20pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
ONE of the main routes into the heart of Winchester will be shut for up to six consecutive Sundays.
City Bridge, a grade I listed building over the Itchen, will be closed between its junctions with Chesil Street and Eastgate Street for maintenance and repairs.
Winchester City Council, which acted as agents on behalf of Hampshire County Council with regard to the planning application, said the permission to close the road has been given for up to 12 months.
But it is believed the closure will be in place on no more than six occasions, during “off-peak Sunday morning hours”.
The city council said “reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access.”
It is also not known when the work will start.
