Roadworks at the entrance to Frimley Park Hospital are expected to cause disruptions for patients and staff over the next few months.

Surrey County Council have announced that they will be carrying out works on the A325 just outside the hospital site to carry out safety improvements for pedestrians travelling to the hospital.

These works will take place from Monday, June 3 for approximately two months and include the installation of a signalised pedestrian crossing, widening of footways, surfacing, and kerbing and road marking changes.

Staff and patients have been reassured that access will be maintained at all times and that diversions will be put in place.

Work includes

  • Installing a pedestrian crossing for pedestrians crossing Portsmouth Road to and from the Grove School side.
  • Lane restrictions will be put in place on Portsmouth Road (A325) and Chobham Road (B311) between 10am and 4pm.
  • Overnight closure of Portsmouth Road to the North East of the hospital roundabout (ie. No left turn on exit from the site). Diversions will be put in place and expected to be in place from 8pm to 6am.

Frimley NHS Health Trust commented: “Please talk to a member of our staff on site if you need help – talking to our staff can solve most issues. Access will be maintained to all properties during our works, there may be times when there are delays but the team will advise.
“Working overnight is necessary on traffic sensitive roads to reduce disruption during peak times. It also enables longer uninterrupted working before the closure is lifted for daytime traffic, and results in a shorter period of disruption. There will be some noise, but we will try to carry out the bulk of the noisiest works before midnight.”
