Emergency road closure – Downshire Way

Due to a significant water leak, which requires emergency repair by South East Water, the westbound carriageway of the A322 Downshire Way will be closed from 9pm tonight, Friday 6 January. 

The affected carriageway is the section between the Horse and Groom and Twin Bridges roundabouts, on the side closest to the Downshire Arms Beefeater.  

Traffic will need to find an alternative route. A signed alternative route will be available by Bagshot Road, Church Road, Millennium Way, Skimped Hill Lane and Twin Bridges roundabout.

South East Water will work over the weekend to complete the repair as quickly and safely as possible. We will provide an update when the carriageway reopens. 

Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
