Farnborough Growth Package Improvements

Improving the A3011 Lynchford Road, the A325 Farnborough Road, Farnborough Town Centre and the Blackwater Valley Gold Grid

Last update: January 2018

Scheme overview

Hampshire County Council has developed a number of exciting ideas to improve congestion, and accommodate increasing travel demands in Farnborough and the wider Blackwater Valley.


The proposals look to improve transport links along the A3011 Lynchford Road, the A325 Farnborough Road and Farnborough Town Centre and are now subject to public consultation (details below).


The Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership has identified Farnborough as one of its ‘growth towns’ and has provisionally allocated £6.7 million of Local Growth Fund to the County Council, to start making improvements. This will be added to the £2 million of developer contributions, giving a total package of £8.7 million for highways improvements to tackle congestion and improve cycle facilities in the area.


The County Council is also looking to improve public transport in the area, known as the ‘Blackwater Valley Gold Grid’, which aims to increase connectivity across the area. The County Council is working with Surrey County Council and Stagecoach to deliver this project, which stretches from Aldershot to Camberley.


Public Consultation

The public consultation closed on Tuesday 23 January 2018 and the exhibition plans can still be viewed. A report will be published in the near future.


A report on the Farnborough Growth Package was presented to Councillor Rob Humby at his decision day on Tuesday 14 November 2017.
