A3011 Lynchford Road Parking Bay Arrangements
The current available on-street parking will be relocated east of the original parking bays along A3011 Lynchford Road just before Morris Road. This is to allow safe and sufficient working space for our contractors to progress with the continued drainage installation works. As per the previous parking arrangements, a minimum of 10 parking bays in this section will be available for the duration of the works which is expected to be completed in November 2023. We will provide the new parking bays prior to closing the current bays to minimise disruption.
Please see the plan for the revised parking arrangements on Lynchford Road.
Friday 28 July
With works underway on the scheme, a review of programme of the remaining works has been carried out. The revised programme can be found in the latest Phasing Update presentation. Due to the nature of construction works, the programme will continue to be reviewed regularly and any changes will be published on this webpage. We appreciate your patience whilst the works are being undertaken.

- Traffic Management Update
Gordon Road Temporary Access Arrangements
Hampshire County Council have made Gordon Road two way temporarily from Monday 3 July until the completion of the Lynchford Road scheme. It will be necessary to extend the existing daytime ‘no waiting’ restriction on the southern side of Gordon Road to include evenings and overnight.
The new cycle and pedestrian crossing facilities have been completed along Lynchford Road. As part of these works, new kerbs, drainage, road surfacing, and tactile paving have been implemented.
There will be a requirement for the temporary closure of the junction of Peabody Road with A3011 Lynchford Road. Dates for this will be advised closer to the time.
A3011 Lynchford Road Vegetation Clearance
Vegetation clearance has been completed and replanting will take place in autumn on the Old Lynchford Road side of the fence.
Queens Road Traffic Calming Measures - Update
Following concerns received regarding high traffic volumes and large numbers of HGV’s using Queens Road in North Camp, we have implemented the following measures;
- Advisory signage at Park Road roundabout indicating that it is not an appropriate through route for HGV traffic;
- The white lining and road markings at the junction of Park Road/Sycamore Road/Reading Road are to be repainted and made clearer along with the white lining and markings on the zebra crossings including the road humps outside South Farnborough Infant School on Queens Road. A date for these works will be advised here.
Public safety remains our absolute priority and we will continue to monitor the traffic levels on Park Road and Queens Road and will review the situation and need for any further measures following the start of the new school term in September.
- Traffic Management Update - Old Lynchford Road & Alexandra Road
Traffic management arrangements on Old Lynchford Road
From Monday 11 September to Friday 15 September, a road closure will be in place along (Old) Lynchford Road from the junction of Camp Road to St Alban’s roundabout. The road closure will be in place from 7:30pm each day, with the road reopening by 6am the following morning. The area at the eastern end of (Old) Lynchford Road, where the new entrance and exit from A3011 Lynchford Road has been created and resurfacing already completed, will remain open for vehicle access and some limited on-street parking.
The works will include completion of highway drainage improvements in the area around the Camp Road junction, followed by the resurfacing of the remainder of (Old) Lynchford Road between Camp Road and St. Alban’s Roundabout.
Two additional disabled parking bays have been implemented outside North Camp Pharmacy on Camp Road and some minor works in the coming weeks to install a new dropped kerb.
The changes to parking provision are being made on a trial basis under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO), as the implications for disabled parking bay users and local businesses are unknown. During the first six months of the trial, there will be an opportunity for people to contribute their views. All comments received will be considered carefully and will help to determine whether the restrictions should continue in force indefinitely, whether to modify the arrangements, or whether to revert back to the original arrangement. Please see the Public Notice for further details.
Works on Alexandra RoadWorks are almost complete along Alexander Road, there will be minor remedial works till early autumn 2023.
