Wroxall, St John's Road

Updated 19 January 2021

We're upgrading our gas network in St John's Road, Wroxall, from Monday 18 January 2021.

Our project will last approximately 10 weeks and St John's Road will be closed in both directions throughout. 

Our essential work will ensure your community receives a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come. We’re working closely with the UK Government and public health bodies to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance.

On Monday 18 January 2021, we’ll start work in St John’s Road. To ensure everyone’s safety, we need to close St John’s Road throughout the project. This will be a rolling road closure, so St John’s Road will be closed in sections from outside a house known as ‘Hillsbro’’ to just south of Coombe Park and Alpha Cottages.

Through traffic will be diverted via Shanklin Road, Victoria Avenue, Church Road, Cowleaze Hill, Bonchurch Road, Leeson Road, St Boniface Road, Mitchell Avenue, Ocean View Road, Newport Road and the B3327. Resident access will be maintained at all times.

Throughout this project we will also need to close Redhill Road, at its junction with Appuldurcombe Road. This is due to the width of the road and it not being suitable for traffic using this as a diversion. Resident access will be maintained via the Shanklin Road end.
