Beware of roadworks on the approach to the Heatherwood roundabout in Ascot!

Work is about to start on altering the road and roundabout layout as part of the new Heatherwood Hospital development. This will involve work to the main, large roundabout on the High Street by contracting firm, J McCann. The changes will result in an increase from two to three lanes with dedicated filter lanes, which should assist in traffic flow and allow better access to the new developments on the Heatherwood Hospital site. There will also be new street lighting, signage and pedestrian access, including upgraded pedestrian crossing areas. 

The first phase of work started on Monday 1st February, by J McCann will involve utility upgrades and will result in the closure of one lane for about 30 metres running up to the roundabout on the High Street. This should keep traffic disruption to a minimum. The next phase, starting at the end of March, will mean full lane closure until early August. More information will be provied about this as work progresses.

The works have been planned and phased to have the lowest impact on the travelling public, noise levels and the environment. Throughout the project, it is intended to keep traffic flowing, have minimum lane closures and keep any diversions in place for the shortest time possible to safely conduct the works.”

July Racing Weekend | July 9th & 10th      www.ascot.co.uk 

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty as to when spectators will be able to return to Ascot Racecourse, we are currently not selling tickets to any Ascot racedays, with racing remaining behind closed doors until further notice.
 
Nevertheless, you can still enjoy following all the action from home.
The highlight of this competitive racing weekend is the Group 2 Summer Mile Stakes, held on the Saturday. One of the most important mile contests of the season, the race has attracted an impressive line-up in previous years including former Queen Anne Stakes winners Lord Glitters and Accidental Agent. 
 
Last years winner Mohaather ran a spectacular race under Dane O'Neill following an unlucky run at Royal Ascot a few weeks previous. The Marcus Tregoning trained superstar followed up this impressive performance with a win in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, proving his talent at the top level of the sport.

The QIPCO King George Diamond Racing Weekend is Ascot's midsummer showpiece, hosting Europe's premier mid-season contest over a mile and half, The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes. A race won by countless legendary names including Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Dancing Brave and Nashwan was no less exciting last year as we welcomed back the much-loved defending champion Enable, with the extraordinary mare winning a record third King George title.
