Temporary weekday footpath closure for essential tree works

A section of the Itchen Navigation footpath between Garnier Road and Hockley Viaduct will be closed on weekdays for a period of five weeks as some essential tree works are carried out in the area.

The closure will be in place on weekdays from 20 February and 26 March 2024 between 8am and 4.30pm.

Dead and unstable ash trees will be removed during the period as it’s important to protect the healthy trees. Removal of trees is always a last resort, but ash dieback will spread significantly without careful management and cause the affected trees to become unstable.  

The healthy ash trees will continue to be monitored.

Footpath closure notices from Hampshire County Council’s Public Rights of Way, which show adjacent footpaths, will be displayed throughout the closure period.
