A24 London Road and Deepdene Avenue resurfacing

Update 19 September

Phase two of these works is scheduled to start tonight. More information regarding what phase two involves can be found below.

Scheme overview:

We will be resurfacing large sections of the A24 London Road and Deepdene Avenue between A25 Deepdene roundabout and the roundabout at the junction with Pixham Lane, as part of our major maintenance programme. The works are due to start on 16 September, from 9pm – 6am, for 13 nights.

How will this affect me?

The road will be closed between Deepdene roundabout and Givons Grove roundabout at the junction with A246 Young Street, Leatherhead. The official diversion is as follows:

  • Northbound - A25 Reigate Road/High Street/ South Street/Vincent Lane/Westcott Road/Guildford Road/Coast Hill/Guildford Road Dorking Road/Station Road/A25 Shere Road, A246 Epsom Road/Guildford Road/Leatherhead Road/ Young Street, A24 Dorking Road/ Mickleham By-Pass/London Road
  • Southbound – A24 London Road/Mickleham By-Pass/Dorking Road, A246 Young Street/Guildford Road/Leatherhead Road/ Guildford Road/Epsom Road, A25 Shere Road/Station Road/Dorking Road/Guildford Road/Coast Hill/Guildford Road/Westcott Road/West Street/High Street/Reigate Road

This work will be carried out in three phases to maintain local access to both Dorking and Dorking Deepdene train station throughout the works. Local access routes to the station will differ for each phase of the resurfacing. Please leave plenty of time for your journey if you plan on catching a train. If you need help once you reach the works area, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to assist you.

Phase one:

Phase one of the work will take place from Deepdene Roundabout north west exit, to Deepdene Avenue junction with London Road (northbound only). Access to the train stations will still be possible during this phase of the works, however you will have to follow a diversion. The diversion route for this phase of the work is as follows:

  • Northbound - A25 Reigate Road/ High Street/ South Street/Vincent Lane/Westcott Road/ A2003 Station Road/ Chalkpit Lane/ Ashcombe Road
  • Eastbound – A2003 Station Road/ Chalkpit Lane/ Ashcombe Road/ A24 London Road/ Deepdene Avenue

Phase two:

Phase two of the work will start at the Ashcombe signal junction. Both the northbound and southbound approach of the A24 will be closed whilst the team work on the signal junction. This section is expected to take four nights. Access to the station will still be possible from the Deepdene roundabout end of the work. Once the Ashcombe signal junction is complete both the junction and the southbound approach will be re-opened to traffic and the station can then be accessed via the A24 southbound. The diversion route around the full extent of the closure during this phase is as follows:

  • Northbound - A25 Reigate Road/High Street/ South Street/Vincent Lane/Westcott Road/Guildford Road/Coast Hill/Guildford Road Dorking Road/Station Road/A25 Shere Road, A246 Epsom Road/Guildford Road/Leatherhead Road/ Young Street, A24 Dorking Road/ Mickleham By-Pass/London Road
  • Southbound – A24 London Road/Mickleham By-Pass/Dorking Road, A246 Young Street/Guildford Road/Leatherhead Road/ Guildford Road/Epsom Road, A25 Shere Road/Station Road/Dorking Road/Guildford Road/Coast Hill/Guildford Road/Westcott Road/West Street/High Street/Reigate Road

Phase three:

The final phase of the work will include resurfacing across the entrance to Dorking train station. The team will be digging up the road surface halfway across the entrance to the station, leaving the other half as an access point in and out. Gatemen will be present to manage access in and out of Station Approach and Lincoln Avenue, when it is safe to do so. There is potential for delays to station access during this phase of our works. Please leave plenty of time to travel during all phases of the work, but particularly this phase. The resurfacing across the junction will take place after midnight to avoid disruption to the trains. The diversion route around the full extent of the closure during this phase is as follows:

  • Southbound – A2003 Ashcombe Road/ Chalkpit Lane/ Station Road/ A25 West Street/ High Street/ Reigate Road

Frequently asked questions

Will there be access to houses and businesses within the works area?

We will make sure you can get to and from your house or business when it is safe to do so. Please talk to a member of our staff on site if you need help – talking to our staff can solve most issues.

Why are these works being carried out at night?

Working overnight is necessary on traffic sensitive roads to reduce disruption during peak times. It also enables longer uninterrupted working before the closure has to be lifted for daytime traffic, and results in a shorter period of disruption. There will be some noise but where possible we will try to carry out the bulk of the noisiest works before midnight.
