Highways England will be resurfacing a section of the A3 northbound carriageway at Thursley, to ensure the network remains in a safe and serviceable condition. Work will also involve maintenance to the communications sensors within the carriageway.

As some sections of the resurfacing will require replacement of deep layers below the surface and additional time will be essential for materials to harden, they will need to close the A3 northbound carriageway from Longmoor (Hampshire) to Milford (Surrey) over a full weekend period, from 9pm on Friday 15 May through to 6am on Monday 18 May 2020.

The A3 northbound carriageway along the same stretch will then be closed over five nights starting on Monday 18 May (9pm to 6am). They will also be utilising these overnight closures to resurface a section of the A3 at Bramshott.

During the closure a signed diversion will be in place from the Longmoor junction, via the A325 and A31 Hogs Back.

In addition, for their team to disconnect the communication sensors within the carriageway, they will need to close the A3 southbound carriageway from the A31 Hogs Back to Longmoor overnight (9pm to 6am) on Monday 4 May. A signed diversion will be in place via the A31 and A325.

Access for emergency service vehicles on blue light calls will be maintained during the closures.

At present traffic flows across the country are significantly reduced and they hope this will reduce disruption along the diversion route; however, they still advise road users to plan their essential journeys in advance or avoid the route if possible.

Please be aware that due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic, all their works are subject to change due to available resource by their Supply Chain, as well as possible adverse weather conditions – please check the yellow signs placed in advance for confirmation of the closures dates/timings.
