Road closures (temporary) and diversions (including temporary signs and traffic lights)

When work is needed on the highway, the safety of everyone is paramount. Traffic (vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians) must be warned about the works and guided safely around them with temporary signs. This often means use of temporary traffic lights, which can only be used if an application has been made and agreed. If it is impossible or unsafe to carry out work in proximity to 'live' traffic, we may need to put diversions in place and close the road. We never take this decision lightly.

Hampshire County Council seeks to minimise any disruption from road works by co-ordinating work on the highway, this is known as network management). Where possible, individual utility companies such as electricity, gas, communications, water etc are encouraged to take advantage of programmed work of others. Once an organisation has road space 'booked' for works, it is obliged to complete it as quickly as possible.

Hampshire County Council's responsibilities

Note - temporary signs and traffic lights must comply with the Traffic Signs Manual, Chapter 8 (Traffic Safety Measures and Signs for Road Works and Temporary Situations).
