A busy Fareham roundabout is set for a month-long resurfacing by Hampshire County Council.

Quay Road roundabout in Fareham is a large and frequently used stretch of road near to Fareham Shopping Centre.

The roundabout is often subject to delays during rush hour and during weekends when the shopping centre becomes busy.

Hampshire County Council is carrying out resurfacing works on the road, which will see the roundabout subject to overnight closures for a month over the summer.

The works are due to take place from Tuesday, May 7 until Friday, June 7 and will see the road closed from 9pm until 5:30am.

As stated by the council, this should result in only minor disruption to road users.

The road resurfacing will see the top layer of the road replaced with a new asphalt surface.

A diversion route will be put in place for drivers that still need to travel at the time of the road works and yellow warning signs will be erected to let the public know dates the works will take place.

Posting publicly to alert residents on One Network, a spokesperson for Hampshire County Council said: “Carriageway resurfacing works are to be undertaken at the Quay Street roundabout.

“The works are programmed to take place between Tuesday, May 7 and Friday, June 7, 2024, which includes an allowance for potential delays, and will be phased.

“To complete the works in the shortest possible time and to minimise disruption we will be working seven nights a week between the hours of 21:00 and 05:30hrs with the road open during the day.”

Hampshire County council has added that the works may not take place on the first date advertised - but will take place during the dates shown on the signs placed on the roundabout.
