Alderholt is served by narrow, rural lanes, the majority with pinch points which make it difficult for two vehicles to pass. The road network around the village will not cope with the additional traffic generated by up to 2,400 homes.

The planners advise that infrastructure will only come after the houses are built, and the village is still waiting for the road improvements promised after development in the 1970s.
