national highways
Notice is hereby given that National Highways intends to make an Order on the A3 Trunk Road in the Counties of Surrey and Hampshire, under Sections 14(1)(a) and 14(1)(c) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 because works are proposed to be executed on the road. The effect of the Order would be to: -
1. authorise the overnight closure, in phases, of both carriageways of the A3 between Hook Underpass (A309) and Ockham Interchange (B2039/B2215), and all slip and link roads leading to and from this length;

2. impose a mandatory 50mph speed limit on the lengths of carriageway and the slip and link roads described in 1. above.

3. impose an overnight temporary 10mph speed restriction while traffic is escorted through the works area by a convoy system, on the lengths of carriageway described in 1. above.

4. authorise the overnight closure of any lay-by, bus stop or gap in the central reservation adjacent to the lengths of carriageway described in 1. above.

5. authorise the overnight closure of any side road at junction with the lengths of carriageway described in 1. above.

These measures would be in the interests of road safety while contractors undertake Programmed Cyclical Maintenance (tunnel maintenance, bridge maintenance, drainage, lighting, signage, inspections and surveys, maintenance and clearance of vegetation, litter picking and clearance, road sweeping, emergency crossing point maintenance, road markings and road studs, electrical loop works, barrier maintenance and clearance of injurious weeds).
The duration of each closure would vary depending on the nature of the maintenance work being undertaken on each occasion. The programme of works would start on or after 2nd January 2022. Planned maintenance work would be scheduled to avoid disruption during known peak periods, although essential maintenance may be necessary during these periods to prevent the need for emergency works. In such cases less disruptive options would be considered. Any overnight closures and/or speed restrictions taking place on the A3 and connecting roads between Hook Underpass and Ockham Interchange would be in operation between (maximum period):
Monday - Thursdays 22:00 - 05:30
Fridays 23:00 - 06:00
Saturdays 22:00 - 06:00
Sundays 22:30 - 05:30
(The A3 Order extends to Horndean not covered by this newspaper) The Order would come into force on 2nd January 2022 and shall remain in force until 24th December 2022. A copy of the A3 Cyclical Maintenance Programme and the intended diversion routes are available from the Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or email at

. During closures above, traffic affected would be diverted using other junctions of the A3, or the A243, A244, A245, A246, A247, A25, A320, A322, B2039, B2070, B2171, B2215, B382, Bridge Road, Chillbrook Road, Downside Bridge Road, Downside Road, Forest Road, Horsley Road, and Old Lane. The diversion in operation would vary according to the closure in force, and the diversion roads listed above are the agreed routes, but these may change depending on local conditions. The temporary carriageway, slip and link roads, lay-by, bus stop, and side road closures, speed limits, convoy working, and diversion routes would be clearly indicated by traffic signs when they are in operation during the works periods.
