As planned, the next phase of works will be to construct the junction that connects Oakhanger Road with the new relief road. To ensure the safety of road users and the workforce, Oakhanger Road will need to be closed.
The closure will take place at: Oakhanger Road between Hogmoor Road and Budds Lane, from Monday 4 September, for eight weeks.
During this closure there will be no traffic lights at the junction of Firgrove Road, at its access to the A325.

Southern section of the Relief Road
Hampshire County Council has appointed Carillion to construct phase two of the Relief Road on the two mile southern section of the Whitehill and Bordon Relief Road which started on 21 October 2016. The £20 million major scheme will join up with phase one (Louisburg Avenue), to create a new Relief Road to the west of the area, with a dedicated path for pedestrians and cyclists.
The southern section will pass between the garrison redevelopment area and Hogmoor Inclosure. It will include a double roundabout junction at the southern tie in with the A325. In addition, two traffic light controlled junctions; one to access the new garrison housing development and the second at the intersection with Oakhanger Road will be provided. The work is due to be complete in Spring of 2018.
The majority of construction work will not affect local residents or commuters as it is constructed on Ministry of Defence land to the west of Whitehill and Bordon. There will be occasions when diversions and road closures will need to be put in place, the County Council will ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum for the safety of road users and our workers.
Roads now open: the A325 and the northern section of the Relief Road which provides access to the new show homes.
Background and updates about the wider project is available on the Whitehill & Bordon Eco-town website
Northern section of the Relief Road
Hampshire County Council appointed Raymond Brown Construction to work on the northern section of the Relief Road which started on 28 September 2015. This section is now complete and provides access to the new housing developments.
Phase one of the Relief Road comprises of 0.6 miles (1km) of road through the Louisburg Barracks site that connects with the A325 in the north. There are three brand new roundabouts along the relief road, two within the site of the barracks to provide access to the new development areas and the third connecting the new road with the existing A325. Completed Phase one section.
Background and context
The Relief Road supports the planned regeneration of Whitehill & Bordon in order to:
- provide a free flowing alternative to the A325 and relieve traffic congestion on the A325
- provide access to the new development
- reduce development traffic flow on the A325 and on surrounding local roads
- reduce community severance, currently created by heavy traffic flow on the A325
The route of the road will:
- start to the north of Bordon, on the A325 Farnham Road
- pass through the MOD area to the west of the town and reconnect with the A325 to the south at the A325 Petersfield Road, Liphook Road and Firgrove Road junction in Whitehill
The road will be a total length of about 2.6 miles (4.1km) and except for a short section of dual carriageway at the northern end will comprise a two way single carriageway with separate provision for pedestrians and cyclists.
The County Council gave its full approval to construct the relief road in January 2015.
