Here’s the second of a series of information posts about the Mill Road Bridge closure this summer. We’re using these to give Romsey & Petersfield residents and traders as much detail as we can about the closure arrangements.
Please use the comments box below if you have concerns or questions. We’ll respond to those as quickly as we can.

Bridge Closure Dates
Mill Road Bridge closes to all motor vehicles from Monday 1st July 2019, and Govia Thameslink estimate that the work will be complete by Monday 26th August 2019.
We’ll pass on any changes to the projected end date as soon as we hear about them.
Here’s a map showing the diverted Citi 2 service (yellow), and the shuttle services 2A (blue) and 2B (green).

Gas Utility Works
Triio will be replacing the gas main which runs the length of Mill Road during the closure period. For further details see our previous post: https://overmillroadbridge.org.uk/bridge-closure/info/update-1/#gas
Financial Impacts on Traders
We understand that Govia Thameslink (GTR) are working with the Mill Road Traders’ Association regarding the potential for financial impact of the Bridge Closure on traders. If you have concerns about this then please contact the Traders’ Association direct.
Govia Thameslink will be providing two new art panels on the bridge, and are running a competition amongst local schools to choose a design for each.
The existing art on the bridge will remain as-is after GTR’s work has been completed.
