Toll Bridge Works
A few people have expressed disappointment about the removal of the cobbles on the toll bridge.
Unfortunately, they proved to require a lot of maintenance and issues with bicycle tyres getting stuck in the gaps between the stones.
The better news is that the work has not yet been completed.
A specialist contractor will be imprinting a block pattern into the tarmac to give an impression of block paving (without the maintenance liability).
In order to complete the Carriageway and Footway improvement works on Eling Lane from Lexby Road to Eling Hill, we require the closure of the road again for one day.
The work is programmed for 10th December 2019 and as before, we will be closing the road in two phases to vehicular traffic.
During which time, the road will be closed to vehicular traffic from 07:30 -18:00hrs.
Phase 1 – Eling Lane and Lexby Road.
Phase 2 – Eling Toll Bridge.
Information signs advising road users of the works will be erected approximately 2 weeks before the start of works.
A letter will be sent to local residents and an email will be sent to New Forest District Council and Totton and Eling Town Council to advise them accordingly.
Should you have any questions or require further information please contact the Operation Resilience team on 01962 813063 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

FLOODING ISSUES The amount of rain falling in the local area is causing some serious problems. Some of our roads have a lot of standing water on them, so when driving, do take care. I checked out Eling this morning. The tide was low, so no homes flooded yet (as far as I am aware),…
