Major transport projects




Surrey County Council has an agreed programme of major transport schemes for which the county council seeks funding from a number of sources including Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and the Department for Transport (DfT). A number of schemes that are part of the programme are currently being prepared for delivery up to 2021.

You can check out our progress in delivering major transport schemes as part of strategic infrastructure delivery across Surrey by visiting our performance pages. You will also find a number of fact sheets summarising the schemes.


What major schemes are currently being developed?

Most of the schemes aim to address congestion, ease traffic flow and reduce road casualties across the county. As well as some large highway improvements, the schemes also aim to make it easier to travel by bus, by bike and on foot. Schemes include making improvements to cycle lanes and footways, putting in bus lanes, making bus stops better and more accessible and ensuring people can get reliable information about bus travel times.

To secure funding for major schemes, economic business cases must be prepared. This involves a number of stages to ensure that the schemes deliver value for money and sustainable, effective, reliable and safe transport solutions. The schemes currently being prepared are displayed in the following table:

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 devolved to the Local Enterprise Partnerships, 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.

The Department for Transport (DfT) also created a Safer Roads Fund in 2017 to improve the 50 worst roads for road casualties in England. Surrey County Council have made a bid for funding for safety improvements on the A217 between Reigate and Horley.


How can I find out more?

As schemes are progressed, we will undertake a number of public consultations. These pages will be updated with details as and when these come forward.

Forthcoming and live consultations are listed at the top of this page.
