Advance road closure warning: Farnborough Air Show

The Farnborough Airshow runs from Monday 16 July to Sunday 22 July. During the show, a number of one-way systems, road closures and other restrictions will be in place.

Road closures - A323 Fleet Road and Aldershot Road

The following roads will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians from Monday 9 July to Sunday 22 July between midday and 5pm: (This includes practice week - Monday 9 July to Sunday 15 July) 

  • A323 Fleet Road - from its junction with Norris Hill Road and its junction with Laffans Road
  • Aldershot Road - from its junction with A323 Fleet Road to the eastern boundary of The Foresters public house

A diversion route will direct traffic to use Bourley Road. You can find the full diversion route on the Rushmoor Borough Council website.

These roads are being closed because of increased safety measures introduced by the Civil Aviation Authority following the Shoreham Airshow accident.

As a result of these measures, the Farnborough Airshow organisers asked Hampshire County Council to close selected roads while the aerobatics displays are taking place. They also asked the Ministry of Defence to close a section of land to the south west of the airfield.

Additional restrictions 

As well as the restrictions above, there are further road closures and restrictions taking place in Rushmoor throughout the week of the show. Details of these restrictions can be found on the Rushmoor Borough Council website.
