Cllr Benington and Cllr Melanie Stevens have written to us to advise of the following……
O’Rourkes will be closing Shire Lane (between the junctions of Downe Road and North End Lane) for one day on Friday 20/05/2016. This is to complete pot hole/carriageway repairs. All works will be completed during off peak hours 09:30-15:00.
Unfortunately, this cannot be completed at the same time that SGN close Shire Lane at the end of May. This is because both sets of works are at the complete opposite ends of Shire Lane and if both jobs were to run at the same time, it would create problems with access for residents/emergency services and could also potentially gridlock Downe Village with traffic.
The following diversions will be in place on Friday 20/05/2016:
For traffic travelling from Leaves Green/Downe Road – traffic will be diverted via New Road Hill, Rookery Road, New Road Hill
For traffic travelling from Farnborough Village Shire Lane Direction – traffic will be diverted via High Elms Road, Downe High Street, Rookery Road, New Road Hill
