Coronavirus: how the outbreak is affecting our roadworks and maintenance
Surrey County Council is resuming its essential roadworks programme to help keep routes open and safe for key workers during the coronavirus restrictions. More information and updates can be found on our roadworks coronavirus page.
Investing in transport across Surrey
We are committed to making journeys across the county easier, more predictable and safer. We recognise that a good quality transport network helps our county's economy to be strong, vibrant and successful and ensures Surrey remains a great place to live and work.
Our major transport projects, listed on this page, introduce new and improved transport infrastructure that will deliver our Surrey Transport Plan (LTP3), and work towards the community vision for Surrey in 2030. In addition to these major investments, we also undertake major maintenance projects and localised highway improvements. Sometimes we will authorise developers, district councils and other organisations to make improvements to our highways too.
Major transport projects first go through a planning period where options are developed and assessed. Following this, a business case is prepared that weighs up the costs of the proposal against the benefits it would bring about. Typically we also apply for funding from a number of sources at this stage, including Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and the Department for Transport (DfT). Subject to the successful completion of these steps, the project can then be delivered.
There are opportunities for residents and businesses to have their say at various points through project planning and delivery. This feedback is invaluable and shapes projects so that they deliver for our communities. Once a project has been completed, we monitor what has been built to confirm that the project has had the impact that was expected.

How are major transport schemes funded?
Funding for the major schemes is expected to come from a number of sources, including developer contributions and government grants.
Government funding for major infrastructure projects is typically devolved to the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP), of which Surrey is a member of two: the Coast to Capital LEP in the east and the Enterprise M3 LEP in the west. In partnership with the districts and boroughs, we bid for funding from each of the LEPs for a number of transport schemes. As a result, a significant proportion of the funding for the active major schemes will come from the LEPs' Local Growth Funds.
We have also successfully applied for funding when government departments have invited bids for specific national initiatives - for example, the Department for Transport's Safer Roads Fund and the Department for Communities and Local Government's Housing Infrastructure Fund.
How can I find out more?
As schemes are progressed, we will publish information on these pages. At key points during the planning and delivery of projects, we will also undertake public consultations, which can be found on our roads and transport proposals and consultations pages.
If you would like to receive notifications of future public consultations on major transport projects you can sign up for email alerts.
