Press release from Hampshire County Council

Progress on the Whitehill & Bordon Relief Road, to facilitate the re-development and economic regeneration of the town, continues with essential drainage works starting in Lindford Road on Monday 1 February.

Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment said: “Whitehill & Bordon is to benefit from major regeneration over the next 20 years, and the relief road will underpin this. This part of the work will be done under temporary traffic lights for eight weeks, and will be completed before the next phase of works starts along the A325 Farnham Road. We will do our best to minimise disruption, but do anticipate some delays to normal journey times and so would ask everyone to allow more travel time.”

The works in Lindford Road will be carried out under a single lane closure and traffic will be managed under temporary traffic signals in sequence with the junction of Lindford road and the A325 Farnham Road.

Access to Royal Drive will be managed within the traffic light arrangements, but access to St Lucia Park Road at its junction with Lindford Road will be via the A325 Camp Road and Trenchard Park only.

The relief road supports the proposed new town centre development and the regeneration of Louisburg Barracks as well as relieving congestion on the A325. It starts at

the Whitehill crossroads in the south and travels north, along the abandoned railway line, before routing through Louisburg Barracks and re-connecting with the A325.
