Wellesley is certainly gaining momentum - with more than 400 families now calling Wellesley home and a third of the development under construction, the area is now looking and feeling very different.
There are currently six developers on site, not only creating new homes, also creating community facilities and renovating iconic historic buildings. We are now in talks with developers for our next housing phase, Stanhope Lines East and it is hoped that works will start in this area next year.
Our works to Hospital Hill are now complete – thank you to everyone for your patience while we have carried out these works.
We are now progressing with creating a pedestrian crossing across Farnborough Road. Our Contractors; Walker Construction are carrying out works to create a pelican crossing between Pennefathers Road and the Wellesley Woodlands / sports pitches allowing pedestrians to cross safely. The works will also see a new junction created to allow vehicles to exit and enter Farnborough Road at Pennefathers Road. The works are expected to to be completed before Christmas – and during this time traffic management will be in place. The works will see traffic lights in operation along Farnborough Road between 9.30am – 3.30pm Monday to Friday. It is hoped that by having the traffic lights at this time it will reduce the disturbance to the area. There is also a signed diversion route for pedestrian and cyclist access through Knollys Road and Queens Avenue.
We are also carrying out highway works to upgrade the existing shared use footway/ cycleway facility along the A325 Farnborough Road between Queens Roundabout and Alison’s Road. The works should be complete by the end of the year. Please note these timescales are weather dependent. Any changes to the scheduled date will be made clear on the yellow sign boards erected on site. During the works a lane closure will be in place southbound from the Queens Roundabout to the Alison’s Road Exit Slip, from 9:30am to 3:30pm Monday – Friday, and Saturday’s until 1:00pm. There will be an alternative signed route in place for pedestrians.
