Update on Sir Richard's Bridge, Walton-on-Thames

Sir Richard's Bridge has been a priority for resurfacing for some years. We had planned to resurface the bridge at the same time Ashley Road was resurfaced as part of our Operation Horizon programme. However at the time we became aware that the structure of the bridge was defective, which meant that any resurfacing of the road over the bridge was quite likely to suffer early failure. We held off the resurfacing while we engaged with Network Rail in an attempt to either (a) persuade them to repair the structure or (b) take responsibility for the new road surface if we went ahead with the resurfacing. Unfortunately our engagement with Network Rail was not successful.

In terms of ownership / responsibility, Network Rail are responsible for the structure and Surrey County Council are responsible for the road surface.

We still intend to resurface Sir Richard's Bridge. However there remains a significant risk of early failure of the new road surface due to the defective Network Rail owned structure. We would like to be able to hold off until Network Rail undertake the necessary repairs, or better to be able to persuade Network Rail to bring forwards the necessary repairs, but we have no choice but to resurface in the near future due to the on going deterioration of the road surface. The resurfacing is likely to be next Financial Year 2017-18 but this is subject to change depending on the Council's overall financial position.

We have no authority over Network Rail and so cannot instruct them to make repairs to their infrastructure. Network Rail have their own priorities, and for the time being this is not one of them.

In the meantime we will continue to inspect Sir Richard's Bridge for defects affecting safety, and will arrange for these to be repaired.
