Bridges and structures

In Surrey, there are over 2,500 bridges and structures carrying or crossing County roads, footpaths, bridleways or byways.

Surrey County Council manage about 1,800 of these, the rest are the responsibility of others that include Network Rail and the Highways Agency.

The bridges vary from major, multi-span bridges and interchanges, to simple footpath crossings in a wide variety of construction types. Bridge materials include wrought and cast iron, steel, concrete, masonry and timber.

We have won National and International awards for many of our bridge strengthening and refurbishment schemes. Major works to highway structures are detailed on the County roadworks map.
