A busy road in Hedge End has been hit by road works for the third time in less than two months.

Motorists are facing long delays on the A27 Kanes Hill, near Hedge End and Thornhill, as of late on Monday night after two-way traffic lights were erected again.

Traffic through the area has been exacerbated by the closure of the A334 Charles Watts Way, which has been closed for six months after a land slip at the side of the road.

This has caused congestion to build at the Kanes Hill roundabout where the A27 and the A334 both meet.

The works on the A334 are due to be lifted as soon as Friday.

According to One.Network, the planned works on Kanes Hill are for "utility repair and maintenance works" that will last from June 3 to June 5.

Openreach and Hampshire County Council, which granted the permit for the works, have been approached for further information.

On April 12, Kanes Hill was subject to two-way signals while SGN carried out ‘out emergency repairs to our gas network’.

Then on May 14, the road was again subject to further works by both SGN and Openreach at the same time – causing gridlock from drivers around the rush hour.
