Redbridge Causeway A35 lane closures put back from 17th April to 1st May

NEW Forest drivers using the Redbridge Causeway this week have some relief as planned lane closure have been put back.

The closures, which were set to start today (Monday), will now begin on 1st May.

However, some short-term lane closures will still happen during this week and next, on the left-hand lane of the westbound A35 between 9am and 3pm for material deliveries.

Work starting on 1st May will involve the north footway closed 24/7 with a diversion for pedestrians and cyclists via the south footway.

The left-hand lane of the eastbound A35 carriageway will also be closed from the approach to the Totton on-slip until the start of the off-slip to Redbridge Roundabout.

The Totton on-slip will be narrowed and will merge with the single lane of eastbound A35 traffic in the right-hand lane.

This will allow for the installation of concrete cover slabs and re-waterproofing work to the north footway. Once this has been completed, the lane will stay closed while the north sides of the three eastbound bridge decks are re-waterproofed and resurfaced.

The closures will be in place Monday to Friday, and will last until mid-June.

As reported in the A&T, the work, which has been ongoing since January, is part of the final phase of a £25m refurbishment of the four concrete bridges which span the River Test.
