Phase one will improve safety and access for cyclists at Saltmarsh Road junction between Itchen Bridge and Central Bridge. Work will take around six months to complete from Saturday 19 October 2013 until the end of March 2014.
The work will transform the current roundabout into a continental inspired traffic light controlled junction. This is to improve safety for cyclists, following seven serious cycling accidents in three years and feedback from a city wide cycle survey - the largest of its kind in any UK city. More details are available through our website.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these important works. Every effort will be made to reduce the closure period without compromising the safety of the workforce or travelling public. Please look out for the diversion signs and ensure that you plan for longer journey times when travelling through this area.

Connected future work
Work to waterproof Central Bridge and allow two way traffic along Terminus Terrace, up to Central Bridge, is expected to progress in early 2014. Work is being programmed to minimize disruption and delays. More details about work on Central Bridge will be available shortly.
