Scheme overview

The A31 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) project has been in the planning and development process for a number of months and aims to improve the drainage and resilience of sections of the A31 network. This project is being partly funded by the Enterprise M3 LEP and the objective is to mitigate the effects of major flooding events in the future. The project is being delivered in several phases some of which include drainage improvements, repairs and carriageway surfacing.

Some of the benefits of the works include:

  • Improving overall road safety for road users
  • Reducing the likelihood of surface water flooding
  • Prolonging the life of the carriageway
  • Helping to deliver economic prosperity in Surrey

Future works

More resurfacing and drainage works will be carried out along the A31; we will notify you in advance of all further works.
