Work being undertaken from 31 January 2022 – An Update from Martin Grant Homes:
We anticipate the next phase of our delivery programme will start on 31 January, with it then due to
be completed by the end of March. Work involves realigning the existing part of the A287 (Farnham
Road) eastern approach to the new roundabout. Further to this work being completed, we will
progress to building the southern part of the roundabout; constructing the westbound exit lane and
alignment of the Bowley Alley / A287 junction.
During this period we anticipate maintaining our standard working hours of 08:00 until 17:00 hours,
Monday to Friday, and 08:00 until 13:00 hours on Saturdays. However, there are no restrictions on
the hours we are permitted to work so we may work outside of these hours if necessary.
Hampshire Highways at Hampshire County Council has approved all the work due to be undertaken
along with the associated traffic management plans. Hampshire Highways will continue to oversee the
programme for its duration and conduct regular site inspections as work progress.
What these roadworks mean for you
To ensure the next stage of work can be safely carried out we will need to install temporary two-way
traffic lights on the A287 (Farnham Road), to the east of the Redfields Lane junction. These will
remain in place for the duration of the next stage, which will start on 31 January and is expected to
be complete by the end of March 2022.
These temporary traffic lights are required as an additional measure to maintain safe travel for all road
users and safeguard our workforce. We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum while the
traffic lights are in place and throughout the duration of our work. Once this next stage of works has
been completed, two-way, free flow traffic will be reinstated and able to use the new roundabout
circulatory as a straight through road.
As agreed with Hampshire Highways, Redfields Lane and Bowling Alley will remain closed to through traffic and the traffic diversion routes to mitigate these road closures will remain in place, along with the reduced speed limit of 30 miles per hour (mph) along the A287, until work on the project is
completed in Autumn 2022.
