Highways England will shortly be carrying out essential concrete repairs to the bridge which carries the A272 over the A34 at Three Maids Hill, north of Winchester (Hampshire). These repairs will improve the longevity of the bridge and ensure safety for our customers.

Specialist scaffolding will be in place below the bridge, and our teams will be elevated platforms to reach the areas to be repaired.

Works are expected to start on Monday 26 April 2021 and should be completed in November 2021. To minimise disruption to customers, Highways England will carry out the work overnight from 9pm to 6am (Monday to Friday only) when there are fewer vehicles on the road.

For the safety of the workforce and customers, there will be narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit on the A34 northbound and southbound carriageways for the duration of the repairs. There will also be a lane closure and a 30mph speed limit on the A272 in both directions across the bridge.

In addition, there will be closures of the A34 northbound and southbound overnight between 9pm and 6am, Monday to Friday nights only. The provisional dates for these closures are below, but are subject to change:

The A34 north and southbound carriageways between the A303 Bullington Cross and the A33 Kings Worthy link will be closed overnight on Tuesday 4th May. Standard/light vehicles will be diverted via the A33 and A303. Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) will be diverted via the A303 and M3.

The A34 southbound carriageway will be closed overnight between the A303 (Bullington Cross) and the M3 (junction 9) from Wednesday 5th May 2021 for 16 weeks. Standard/light vehicles will be diverted east along the A303 towards Popham, then south on the A33 back to the A34/M3. Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) will be diverted east along the A303 to the M3, exit and junction 7 and go around the roundabout, then join the M3 southbound.

The A34 northbound carriageway will be closed overnight beneath the bridge only from Monday 16th August throught to Frdaiy 15th Ocotober 2021. Traffic will be diverted off the A34 via the exit slip road at the junction, around the Three Maids Hill roundabout, then re-join the A34 via the northbound entry slip road.
