The closure is to enable Southern Water to carry out works to provide a new water connection.
Due to the nature of these works, it will not be possible to re-open the road outside the working hours.
The works have been timed to be carried out during the school holidays to reduce their impact
There is a possibility that the works may over-run for various reasons including adverse weather conditions or unforeseen engineering difficulties.
