Mindenhurst / Deepcut Barracks Works Disruptions Update - 6th November 2017

The works continue and this is the latest update to help you to avoid works and therefore keep disruptions to a minimum.

  • Drainage works close to the military housing are now complete, although excess materials stockpiles are still to be removed.
  • Construction of the northern access roundabout on the Deepcut Bridge Road-Newfoundland Road junction commenced on Monday 31 July. The junction to Newfoundland Road was closed on Monday 25 September and this junction will not re-open. A diversion route is signposted to the north of Dettingen Park Estate via Minorca Road. The roundabout works are due to complete at the end of February 2018.
  • Advertising hoarding on the corner of Brunswick Road is now complete, although four flags will be erected week commencing 6 November.
  • A new permanent boundary fence is being erected for 1.7km along the perimeter of the military training ground to the east of Princess Royal Barracks. This work commenced on Monday 16 October and will continue for six weeks.
  • Widening of Cyprus Road, including some surface water drainage installation, and reducing the size of the island in Minorca Road, to allow two-way traffic both sides of the island, commenced on Monday 23 October with some essential tree removal. These works will require temporary traffic management including traffic lights during construction. New trees will be planted in this area in 2018 after construction of the haul road is complete.
  • On Monday 23 October works commenced tying in the new link road from the new roundabout into the existing Royal Way. This requires a temporary lane closure and traffic management for up to eight weeks.
  • Week commencing 20 November a new electrical cable to supply the existing MOD housing will be installed on Newfoundland Road from the junction with Union Road to the junction with Alma Gardens. Temporary traffic management will be in place for up to four weeks.
  • The construction of a new village green adjacent to Brunswick Road will commence on Monday 13 November for six months. This will include a pond and children’s play areas.
  • Work has started in the woodland area north of Princess Royal Barracks to clear footpaths and set out new footpaths to make this area more useable for all. The main works in this area, which will become SANGS (Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space), include a small car park accessed from Royal Way, commencing in December.
