My son and I walked to the post office in Hiltingbury yesterday to buy Star Wars stamps and saw a few Road Closed signs.
Is the whole of Hiltingbury Road closed to traffic?
Where is the road closed?
Hiltingbury Road – between Hursley Road and Ashdown Road only.
From 24th October to 1st November 2015.
Reason of Closure:
By Southern Water: to allow for drainage works to be undertaken.
To visit shops on Hiltingbury Road, you could go through Hursley Road – Winchester Road – Hiltingbury Road.
The “Road Ahead Closed” signs might have affected local businesses at the other end of Hiltingbury Road. People might have thought the whole of Hiltingbury Road is shut.
No wonder Sarah Guilder from Bay Leaves Larder put a note on some Road Closed signs telling people that businesses are open as usual.
“Bay Leaves Larder is open as usual, so are all the other shops.”
“The road is only closed near traffic lights by Hursley Road.”
The other day my friend Allison said she has been having fun “spotting the numpty” on Hiltingbury Road. (Allison is a dog walker; you can’t blame her.)
Allison said: “…cars are STILL turning into Hiltingbury Road despite Road Closed signs and the presence of a massive digger part way down the road completely blocking it!”
(I would like to thank Allison for teaching me this Scottish word, “numpty”)
