Dear Customer

UPDATE: A3 Hindhead Tunnel Improvements to Technology – Planned Closures

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances our planned full closure for 9 January did not take place, therefore there will be a full overnight closure of the tunnel in both directions on Saturday 16 January 2021 between the hours 9pm – 6am – a clearly signed diversion will be in place, traffic will be diverted via A31 Hogs back, the A31, B3004 and the A325.

As part of the ongoing work to upgrade the technology within the Hindhead Tunnel, we will have the below closures in place commencing Monday 18 January 2021.

  • 15, 17, 18, January 2021 the northbound tunnel will be closed with contraflow in place on the southbound tunnel between the hours 9pm to 6am.
  • Tuesday 19 January 2021 for four nights the southbound tunnel will be closed with contraflow in place on the northbound tunnel between the hours 9pm to 6am.

Please note we have future closures planned and will update you weekly, and that the works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. We’ll advertise closure on yellow signs placed in advance alongside the road.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during these closures.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to know about our work, please contact us on 0300 123 5000 or email info@highwaysengland.co.uk. Or you can visit our website at https://highwaysengland.co.uk/travel-updates/daily-closure-report/ where you can find a weekly report of all full closures across the network.
