Upcoming works on Green Street, Standford Lane, and Farnham Road

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is investing £10.6million in the local electricity network; with works progressing to install a new underground high-voltage electricity circuits between Alton and Bordon. Once completed, it will boost the reliability of the local network and to enable greater flexibility as homes and businesses move to low-carbon technologies.

Our planned works and road closures

To conduct this work safely, a number of roads will close to through traffic for a period. The schedule of works is as follows:

  • Green Street: 1 August 2024 – 31 August 2024. The team will undertake Horizontal Directional Drilling works between Lode Farm and Christmas Cottage and stay in that location.
  • Standford Lane: 5 August 2024 – 26 August 2024. The team will start trenching from the junction with Mill Chase Road and move south.
  • Farnham Road: 29 August 2024 – 25 September 2024. The team will start trenching from the A325 roundabout and move south.

To see where the team is working , the interactive map is kept up to date and can be viewed on the project’s webpage.

Please note this schedule is subject to change depending on site and weather conditions. Other works may also be scheduled, with details shared separately.

Keeping you informed

A postcard is being delivered by Royal Mail, to those most closely affected, with further details. A copy of the postcard can be found here. 

In addition to the postcard, we are preparing press, radio, and digital advertising to raise greater awareness of the remaining programme of works.  We will also be holding a community drop-in event where residents can meet the team, discuss the works, and ask any questions they may have.

The drop-in event will take place on:

  • 18 July from 3pm – 7pm at The Shed in Bordon (GU35 0DJ)

A diversion route will be signposted

Whilst the works are conducted, a temporary diversion route will be signposted. Maps of the road closures, traffic management and diversion routes can be found on our website. If you or your constituents are concerned about accessing your property during this time, please contact us using the details found in this notice.

Maintaining local access

Please be reassured that people who live or work on a road we close can still drive in and out. Residents, delivery drivers, blue light services and the council’s waste collection service can all still use the road in both directions, via the diversion route, up to where the team is working. Pedestrian access is always maintained.

Good to know

There are no power cuts planned as part of these works.

Whilst we conduct this work, we aim to keep any noise and disruption to a minimum. The team works Monday to Friday: 7am – 5pm, Saturday: 8am – 4pm and Sunday: 9am – 3pm.

SWR emergency repairs of line between Woking and Basingstoke 8/9/10 Dec

Emergency work to repair landslip will significantly reduce services between Woking and Basingstoke next week

South Western Railway and Network Rail have issued a joint release this morning (see link and below) regarding a significant impact to our services between Woking and Basingstoke next week. This is because of emergency repair work taking place to stabilise an area of embankment which has seen movement over recent days, in order to make it safe. The days which will see the greatest impact are Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December.

You can find more information about the landslip and how it will affect our services, including a brief explainer video, on our website. Our Plan My Journey page also has a summary of the impact on affected services (scroll down to “Network Updates” and select the dropdown labelled “Landslip repairs between Brookwood and Woking”).

Other SWR services which do not pass through this part of the network (e.g. suburban services in SW London) are not affected by this issue. Services between Portsmouth and London via Guildford are also not affected as the slip is to the west of where these trains join the main line at Woking.
