VIRGIN MEDIA

Virgin Media will be carrying out work in Bishopstoke over the next few months. They will be dividing Bishopstoke into sections to have new cabling and cabinets installed and will be providing information to the Parish Council about when each section will begin as the project continues. The Parish Council will then publish this information on our website and Facebook.

When work is due to begin in your street you should receive a leaflet explaining what is happening about 1 week before the work begins. It is expected that each section will take around 1 month to complete.

At any point during this process Virgin can be contacted with questions or with complaints by emailing expansionworks@virginmedia.co.uk or by ringing 0333 000 5925.

 

Additionally there is a Virgin Liaison Officer, Edward Wicks, who can be contacted directly at Edward.Wicks@virginmedia.co.uk.

Edward has committed to making this process as painless and easy as possible for residents of Bishopstoke and has said that anyone with any issues should feel free to contact him so that he can deal with them as quickly as possible.

TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF FOOTPATH 49

Hampshire County Council has made an Order under Section 14(1) a of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, to allow for works in connection with flooding issues to be completed once waters have receded.

The closure period started on 14th January 2020 and is expected to run until the 19th of June but if completed earlier then the path will reopen at that point.

The footpath runs along the Itchen from the bridge by the Hub down to Fish Hook Bay.

There is an alternative route via Chickenhall Lane.
