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.
Heath Road, Weybridge – cycleway improvements
Works at Heath Road were suspended on 13 March in order to evaluate how and when the scheme could restart safely.
Works are now scheduled to restart on 28 April.
The Government and Department for Transport have asked the Highway Sector Council to make every effort to deliver essential highways projects on all local authority highway networks, whilst abiding by the COVID-19 safe working practices. We are therefore carrying out these works in line with central government and COVID-19 safe working practises and in accordance with the CLC Site Operating Procedures, endorsed by Public Health England.
Our sub-contractor will have appropriate procedures in place to ensure their staff can comply with government advice. We would ask that you please respect these workers as they deliver these highways services.
This scheme will remain in constant review in line with UK Government advice.
To ensure the safety of the public and the workforce we would ask that you please do not approach the team on site. Instead, please use our contact us page to get in touch.
We will be constructing a shared use pedestrian and cycle path along Heath Road, Weybridge between Weybridge Station and Brooklands Lane. This scheme will provide a wide path, separated from traffic that both pedestrians and cyclists can use to improve sustainable travel options in the area as well as accessibility to and from Weybridge Station.
- Start date: Saturday 15 February 2020
- Duration: 5 months
- Traffic management: Works will be conducted on the western side of Heath Road and will largely take place off the carriageway in order to minimise traffic disruption. The pavement will be closed while we are undertaking our works. Pedestrians will be diverted to the pavement on the eastern side of Heath Road while this closure is in place.
- Contractor: The works will be undertaken by the council's contractor, Colas Ltd.
Brooklands Business Park Accessibility Project
This scheme is part of a wider project which includes a second route being planned between Weybridge Station and the Brooklands Community Park scheduled for construction later in 2020. It also includes work to widen the pedestrian refuge areas near the entrance to Weybridge Station – the majority of this work was completed in December 2019.
Further information about the wider project, including other scheme components is available on the Elmbridge Major Transport Schemes webpage
