Not sure if this has been on the forum before.

Guildford Borough Council (GBC) approved the application to build a bridge on Ash Road at its meeting on Wednesday (January 6), with work set to be completed in 2023.

Something not mentioned in the article is a planned footbridge between the platforms will make travel between Reading and Aldershot more attractive, with far more robust connections at Ash and a typical journey time of 50m.

The current arrangements are far from ideal, with passengers either risking a walk over the level crossing at Ash in the very short gaps between the NDL services and the Farnham - Guildfords (any minor delay can easily result in a 30 or 60 minute wait) or using the walking interchange between Ash Vale and North Camp.

Of course Reading - Aldershot passengers can also travel via Ascot (typical journey time 1h12m), but they may lose the will to live en route!

There are 236 documents associated with the application. The following link is to one of the documents (PDF) which shows the revised road layout and location of the bridge:
