Four weeks of roadworks have begun on Mousehole Lane in Midanbury.

This comes after Southampton City Council launched a public consultation last year, inviting residents to give their thoughts on a new pedestrian crossing, aimed to improve road access.

Southampton Highways will be working in the area between 7am and 5pm each weekday with temporary traffic lights installed, to control traffic during peak times.

The final week of the works will see three overnight closures on Mousehole Lane between 7pm and 6am, whilst anti-skid surfacing is installed.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Southampton Travel – Southampton City Council and Balfour Beatty Highways Partnership – said: “Works on Mousehole Lane, near Glenfield Infant School and Beechwood Junior School, start on Monday, April 22, for approximately four weeks.

“We’ll be working in the area from 7am to 5pm with temporary traffic signals, that will be controlled manually at peak times.”

They added: “The final week of works will have three overnight closures from 7pm to 6am for anti-skid surfacing.

“Access to properties within the closure will be provided for residents and the pedestrian access will not be affected.”
