Temporary traffic lights

Temporary lights will operate 24 hours a day/seven days a week during our works at the junction of A322 Bagshot Bypass and New Road.

Why can you not remove the temporary lights when you are not working?

As we will be switching off and removing the old traffic lights and replacing them with new ones, it is necessary for temporary lights to control the junction until the new lights have been commissioned.

Traffic delays

Temporary traffic lights at this junction are likely to cause significant traffic delays. Unlike permanent traffic lights, temporary traffic lights are not intelligent and can only let traffic flow in one direction at a time. Please accept our apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our team will be manually controlling the lights at peak times to try and reduce congestion; however some delays are unfortunately inevitable. We also hope that by completing these works during the current lockdown period, traffic volumes and congestion will be reduced

If possible, please avoid this junction, however if you do need to travel this way, please leave additional time to complete your journey.

Overnight lane closures

Much of our work requires lane closures on the A322 Bagshot Bypass. To limit traffic disruption, we will undertake much of our works overnight, so that lane closures can be removed during the day to aid traffic flow. Temporary traffic lights will remain in place 24 hours a day/seven days a week.

Why is no one working during the day?

As some of our work will be completed overnight, the team may not always be on site during the day.

Delays in work and updates

Our work is sometimes delayed by bad weather or failure of our existing pipework. We will keep you updated on any changes via the advance warning signs on site and via our roadworks map. You can also sign up for alerts on the roadworks map to receive notification if any of the details of these works changes.
