As the development progresses here at Wellesley so also do the necessary highway works needed to support the future needs of residents in the area.
Hospital Hill junction
Our works to the Hospital Hill/Knolly’s Road /Pennefather’s Road junction are due to be completed at the end of June. T
he works have taken longer to complete than we thought and we can only apologise for this. The main reason for it taking longer than expected is due to the finding of previously unrecorded underground services in the area. These historic cables and pipes were still live but with no recorded information of what they were serving. Therefore we have had to either divert the supplies or wait for local utility companies to investigate the importance of the cables before we can proceed to determine the impact they may have on the local area, therefore extending the time of the overall works. Please be assured we are endeavouring to complete the works as quickly as possible whilst also trying to minimise the disruption to the public.
Later in the year we will start further works to widen the footpaths further down Hospital Hill towards its junction with Wellington Avenue.
We will shortly be starting works along Queens Avenue ahead of the new school opening in September.
New Woodlands Crossings
We have now started works to create two pedestrian crossing points across both Fleet Road and Clubhouse Road in Aldershot. The crossings will create safer pedestrian crossing points to link two areas of the Wellesley Woodlands.
