Havant Borough Council – acting as agent for Hampshire County Council – is closing the top end of the Billy Trail for three weeks starting on 19th May. That’s so they can lay a new surface over a 250 metre section.
We understand this is the stretch from the car park to the sharp left hand bend (where going right takes you out to the railway signal). We believe the surface will be the same as recently laid at the south end.
The project was kicked-off by Peter Drury’s Hayling Billy 50 project – our congratulations to him.
Obviously we’re pleased that the Billy Trail is getting some attention. But it’s disappointing the upgraded section is so short when so much of the trail needs improvement. We hope the new surface will weather better than the one at the south end which started to cut up almost as soon as it was laid.
