Drop-in sessions being held for residents to find out more about Ash Road Bridge scheme
The Ash Road Bridge scheme is an important infrastructure project. It is part of the Council’s Local Plan (Policy A31).
It will enable housing that has been allocated in the Local Plan to come forward and will close Ash level crossing.
The closure will improve safety for local residents and users of Ash train station. It will also reduce traffic congestion in the area.
The scheme will encourage traffic off rural roads. Traffic currently uses rural roads to avoid the level crossing. This will remove the safety hazard posed by the present level crossing.
The level crossing closes around eight times an hour or 150 times a day. This currently amounts to closure periods of up to 25 minutes per hour.
The level crossing will be closed to vehicle traffic when the road bridge opens.
Drop-in sessions are being held next month for residents in Ash who’d like to find out more about the construction of the Ash Road Bridge.
They are at the Small Hall at the Ash Centre, Ash Hill Road, GU12 5DP on:
- Thursday 21 September 2023 from 3pm to 8pm
- Friday 22 September 2023 from 3pm to 8pm
Come along to see what’s planned and have a chat with the team.
