Winter Service 2015/16
Surrey Highways Winter Service has now begun, starting 2 October until 22 April 2016.
We have already carried out some dry runs for our gritting lorry drivers to familiarise themselves with the roads which we plan to salt when it gets colder.
To find out about our plans for when it does start to get colder, please see our salting and gritting pages, as well as our Cold Weather Plan (PDF) which outlines exactly what service we will provide this year.
Highways Customer Panel
We have launched a brand new Highways Customer Panel. This is a great opportunity for anyone who uses Surrey's roads to make their opinions heard on highways matters.

Surface Treatment – In The Know
Surface treatment or surface dressing is a very effective method of increasing the life of a road as well as its productivity. This method of road surfacing is widely utilised all over the UK, prolonging a roads lifespan by up to 15 years, as well as increasing the skid resistance of the surface.
Below is a short informative video on surface dressing, which highlights the key points and benefits of the treatment.
The video also shows the causes of loose chippings issues, and how road users can help avoid these problems.
