Dear Cllr Barton

Please find attached the letter for the safety improvement work on Woolmer Hill Road, Haslemere. The letters are due to be delivered tomorrow.

Roadworks during the coronavirus restrictions

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.

We will continue to keep Surrey moving and all key routes will remain open and safe for key workers. For more information visit www.ourroads.today.

Notification of Weekend Road Closure: A3 Thursley (Surrey) Resurfacing

A3 Thursley (Surrey) Resurfacing

We will be resurfacing a section of the A3 northbound carriageway at Thursley, to ensure the network remains in a safe and serviceable condition. Work will also involve maintenance to the communications sensors within the carriageway.

As some sections of the resurfacing will require replacement of deep layers below the surface and additional time will be essential for materials to harden, we will need to close the A3 northbound carriageway from Longmoor (Hampshire) to Milford (Surrey) over a full weekend period, from 9pm on Friday 15 May through to 6am on Monday 18 May 2020.

The A3 northbound carriageway along the same stretch will then be closed over five nights starting on Monday 18 May (9pm to 6am). We will also be utilising these overnight closures to resurface a section of the A3 at Bramshott.

During the closure a signed diversion will be in place from the Longmoor junction, via the A325 and A31 Hogs Back.

In addition, for our team to disconnect the communication sensors within the carriageway, we will need to close the A3 southbound carriageway from the A31 Hogs Back to Longmoor overnight (9pm to 6am) on Monday 4 May. A signed diversion will be in place via the A31 and A325.

Access for emergency service vehicles on blue light calls will be maintained during the closures.

At present traffic flows across the country are significantly reduced and we hope this will reduce disruption along the diversion route; however, we still advise road users to plan their essential journeys in advance or avoid the route if possible.

Please be aware that due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic, all our works are subject to change due to available resource by our Supply Chain, as well as possible adverse weather conditions – please check the yellow signs placed in advance for confirmation of the closures dates/timings.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption during our work. If you have any questions, or if you’d like you know more about our work please email us at info@highwaysengland.co.uk or call us on 0300 123 5000.

Blocked gully on Lower Street

Surrey County Council’s Highways team has investigated the gully in Lower Street near the pedestrian crossing that floods during heavy rain events. This is an issue I have raised as a priority with the highways team as it presents a significant health and safety issue for pedestrians and cyclists accessing the station. 

The highways team attended site yesterday with the jetter and cleaned / jetted four gullies via three man hole chambers and traced the line back to an open ditch system at the back of Haslemere House.  The system was completely blocked but is now clean and working. They will monitor during the next rain event.  When the restrictions are lifted I will arrange to meet up on site with the Highways team to make sure the system is working well.

I very much appreciate the Highways team work on this.

Update – Planned works on Chase Lane and Tennyson’s Lane Haslemere Postponed

A week ago, I wrote about planned SGN works affecting Chase Lane and Tennyson’s Lane here.

Please see below an update from SGN explaining that these works are now postponed.

From: SGN Stakeholder and Community Manager

To: Nikki Barton <Nikki.Barton@surreycc.gov.uk>

Subject: Planned works on Chase Lane and Tennyson’s Lane Haslemere

Hello Nikki,

Firstly I would like to thank you for your support in arranging a drop in event at the town hall.  Have to say with such short notice we had a good turnout providing valuable feedback and most importantly local knowledge.  

Following on from the town hall meeting, the team have taken on the feedback given and reached a decision to postpone the replacement work on Chase Lane and Tennyson’s Lane until the spring 2020.  We agree the diversion route could potentially be challenging during the winter months, the residents and road users safety is our priority.    

We would like to thank residents/businesses for their input, support and also their understanding that this work will be re-planned next year.   Please can I ask for your help in sending this email/update to residents you have on your distribution list,  I will also draft a letter to be sent out as soon as possible to all residents who would have been directly affected.

Again thank you for your help, speak soon  

Kindest regards
