Road Closure Notice – Bramley Road & Sherfield Road

We have received information of a road closure notice for Bramley Road and Sherfield Road.  Please note that Bramley Road and Sherfield Road will not be closed for the whole period.  Route diversion maps are available at the link at the end of this post.

  • There is likely to be some phases of work which will require a closure on Bramley Lane and during this time, the proposed diversion route to access Bramley Lane from the north will be via Minchens Lane, Olivers Lane, Bramley Lane.
  • There may be a need for road closures on Sherfield Road during particular phases of this work. If required, the expectation is that this will be two weekends or possibly night working. Closures of Sherfield Road will only be used if there is no safe or practical alternative to complete the work. Diversion route during this closure would pick traffic up on A33/A340 and divert via Basingstoke ring road.
