Victoria Way weekend highway closure


Monday, 16 March, 2020

To enable the safe dismantling and removal of one of the cranes from the Victoria Square development site, it is necessary to close Victoria Way during this weekend.

From 8pm, Friday 20 March to 5am, Monday 23 March 2020 both the north and south-bound carriageways of Victoria Way will be closed to all traffic between the junctions with Goldsworth Road and Lockfield Drive.

North-bound traffic will be diverted along Goldsworth Road and Church Street West before rejoining Victoria Way via Forge End.

South-bound traffic will be diverted along Lockfield Drive, Parley Drive, Triggs Lane and Wych Hill before re-joining the A320 at Turnoak roundabout.

Clear diversion route signage will be in place for the duration of the works.

To minimise disruption, some overnight works are required.

We would like to thank road users for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
