A243 Leatherhead Bypass safety barrier replacement scheme

Works update

26 September

Leatherhead bypass closed 8pm-5am, for one night whilst we remove the temporary safety barriers

Scheme overview

On Monday 19 August, we began replacing the safety barrier along the verges of A243 dual carriageway between the two M25 junction 9 roundabouts. This includes the replacement of the parapets over Barnett Wood Lane.

These works are expected to take six weeks to complete and include:

  • Removing the old safety barrier which is at the end of its serviceable life
  • Installing a temporary barrier which will remain in place until the new one is installed
  • Installing a new permanent safety barrier which meets current standards
  • Replacing Barnett Wood Lane bridge parapets to meet current standards.

24 hour lane closures

There will be one lane closed for three weeks along the Northbound carriageway and on the approaches to the M25 junction 9a roundabout (at the southern end of the bypass).

Following completion of this phase there will be one lane closed for a further three weeks along the Southbound carriageway and on the approaches to the M25 junction 9b roundabout (at the northern end of the bypass).

Further night-time road closures

A final closure of the Southbound carriageway will be required to remove the temporary barrier.
