A303 Andover Bridges Refurbishment

Scott Gaskin

Work to replace the bridge deck waterproofing material, expansion joints and resurfacing of three bridges along the A303 near Andover and Thruxton in Hampshire (Thruxton Hill, Kimpton Quarley and Picket Twenty).

Long-term monitoring has confirmed that these bridges require repair to ensure the integrity of the network, improve safety and provide safer journeys for the public.

We will be working during both day and night-time hours with some activities taking place at weekends, depending on the activity involved.

Traffic management restrictions will be in place for the duration of the work for the safety of both our workforce and customers.

To replace the waterproofing material and joints we will need to close sections of the A303 over a number of full weekends. For information on roadworks, check the roadworks finder.
