Southampton to London pipeline hubs

SOUTHAMPTON TO LONDON PIPELINE – HUBS: We have been asked to draw attention to the latest consultation on Esso’s Southampton to  London pipeline and the associated ‘hubs’ that will be built to store materials during the construction phase.  This pipeline starts in Hampshire, cuts through Surrey and Berkshire, before ending up near Heathrow. The developer now believes that the replacement pipeline can be installed without building six temporary ‘logistics hubs’.

The developer is seeking views on the following proposals:

  • • Removing three temporary logistics hubs entirely at:
  •  o A31, Ropley Dean
  • o M3 Junction 3: New Road, Windlesham
  • o Brett Aggregates, Littleton Lane, Shepperton

Reducing the size of two temporary logistics hubs (within the existing order limits outlined within its application) o A31/A32 Junction, Northfield Lane, Alton

  • o Hartland Park Village, Farnborough – and in the case of Hartland Park, also clarifying access arrangements
  • • Converting one temporary logistics hub into a construction compound (within the existing order limits outlined within our application and located next to the access route, which connects to the main road) o MoD Land: Deepcut Bridge Road, Frimley Green
