Farnborough Queens Roundabout improvement scheme
Updated 28 April 2015
The main works at Queens Roundabout and its approach roads started on Monday 17 November and is expected to last for approximately 12 months. Works began to the southern end of the roundabout. Dyer and Butler is the works contractor.
For the duration of the works, the roundabout along with all of the approach roads and exits will be reduced to one operational lane. This is to ensure the safety of road users, pedestrians and site workers, as well as enabling the delivery of the scheme by the winter 2015 deadline.
There are no full closures planned. Whilst the majority of the works will be undertaken between Monday and Friday, it may on occasion be necessary to undertake essential works during the weekend. As always we will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum.

We have taken on board comments that we have received from our stakeholder group and enquiries received by email and phone. As a result, we are investigating every practical solution to reduce congestion and will be implementing the following:
Providing timely information and updates on the Dyer and Butler scheme website, which will help road users to plan their journeys effectively.
Dyer and Butler will engage with local businesses, residents and services to ensure specific needs are understood and how these can be best accommodated, where practically possible.
