A287 Farnham Road / Redfields Lane Improvement Works
Martin Grant Homes is carrying out improvements to the A287 (Farnham Road). This involves installing a major new roundabout to replace the existing Redfields Lane junction.View works location
We will shortly be starting work on the existing highway. This requires us to occupy different parts of the road so we can build the roundabout, and then realign the existing roads with it.
We anticipate the scheme will be completed by Autumn 2022, by which time the new road configuration will be in place and two-way free flow traffic fully reinstated on the A287.
For the majority of our construction programme, the A287 will remain open for two-way traffic albeit at reduced speed. We will need to use temporary traffic lights towards the end of the works when we have to tie in new and existing roads.
Redfields Lane and Bowling Alley will be closed to through-traffic while this work is taking place. Diversions will be put in place and clearly signposted.
Advance notice of works
Throughout the delivery of our works programme we will provide advance notice of works due to take place, any temporary traffic management measures being put in place and revised journey times. All roadworks will be clearly signposted for the duration of the project and a traffic marshall will be monitoring traffic and our works activity to ensure the safety of our workforce and the public.
Delivering in partnership
This is a complex, major construction project. All the work being undertaken has been approved by Hampshire Highways at Hampshire County Council, who will continue to oversee the programme for its duration and conduct regular site inspections to sign off construction as works progress.

Planning obligations attached to the planning permission for Albany Park - known as the Section 106 Agreement - will unlock nearly £5 million of improvements to directly benefit the local community in and around Church Crookham.
