The A303 between Bullington Cross (exit for the A34) and the A3093 Picket Twenty Junction will be closed at various times between 26th August and 3rd October for maintenance work.
The Highways Agency will be resurfacing sections of the east and westbound carriageways between Andover and Bullington, and selected slip roads at Barton Stacey and Longparish, to ensure the surface remains in a safe and serviceable condition.
Work will be carried out overnight between 10pm and 6am, when traffic flows are at their lowest and during these hours there will be full closures of the A303 between Bullington Cross (exit for the A34) and the A3093 Picket Twenty Junction.
