Hampshire County Council Repair Works in Langstone

Hampshire Highways (Hampshire County Council) are due to undertake safety repair works to the footpath near the end of the Langstone High Street, and quay wall maintenance works to the seawall around the area used as a car park near the Ship Inn, week commencing Monday 9th May.

These works are separate from the Langstone FCERM Scheme where a new coastal defence scheme with a 50-year design life is being developed by Havant Borough Council. Our work continues with the Langstone FCERM scheme to replace these life expired defences.

Please take care if visiting or moving around the area prior to and during the works.

Temporary Works:

  • A compound will be established in the car park to facilitate welfare, parking and storage of materials, equipment and waste throughout the construction period
  • Fencing will be erected around the compound and working areas to provide a safe working environment for both the contractor and the public
