HIGHWAYS bosses at the Isle of Wight Council are warning drivers of severe delays along some key routes due to roadworks this week.

The roadworks are due to take place on a number of roads damaged by heat during the summer from today until Sunday.

Roads affected include — the B3323 Cheverton Shute/Bowcombe Road (between Shorwell Shute and 30 mph signs at Carisbrooke); Brading Downs Road (between Upper Adgestone Road and approx. ¾ of a mile from Ashey Road junction); B3395 Sandown Road (between Yaverland Road and Hillway Road, adjacent to Bembridge Airport); A3056 Hale Common/Newport road (between Fighting Cocks Cross and Lake (Morrisons Roundabout); Downend Road (Burnt House Lane to Arreton Cross) and the A3020 Cowes Road/Newport Road (Horsebridge Hill to Northwood Traffic Lights).

The works will be undertaken using a patching process. Traffic lights will be in operation and considerable traffic delays are likely at some locations according to the Isle of Wight Council, which advised drivers to use alternative routes if possible.

what a shambles the iow council is!!! We had delays when the work was 1st done, now they will do re patching work, costing us yet more time, and vital, costly fuel being burned (not very eco friendly) but no one in the council is accountable for this??? very much closed doors and back handers going on. Mr Pugh and Mr Turner, start earning your wage, work for the island people for once.

Given the disruption that will be caused and the fact they are only patching why can this not be done at night rather than blocking people trying to get to work
