Section E runs through both rural and urban areas with a significant proportion passing through land owned by the Ministry of Defence (MoD). It spans Rushmoor Borough Council and Surrey Heath Borough Council.

Preferred route description

Section E is around 8km in length and starts just after the A327 crossing, running along the north of Cove Road (B3014), where there are two sub-options through the open land to the south of Cove Brook.

Both sub-options then cross the South Western main railway line to the west of Farnborough, before running east and through Queen Elizabeth Country Park to the north of Farnborough Station, where a trenchless crossing passes under the A325.

The section then crosses open land owned by Farnborough Hill School, after which it crosses the North Down railway line at Farnborough North, where there are another two sub-options.

The options meet at the B3411 and follow the existing pipeline to Frith Hill, crossing MoD land, where there are two sub-options, either following the existing pipeline across Pine Ridge Golf Course or following an existing track around the Golf course and running along the verge of Deepcut Bridge Road. This section finishes immediately after the B3015 at the junction of Old Bisley Road, The Maultway and Deepcut Bridge Road.
