Portmore Park Road is to get a better surface. THE WORK HAS NOW BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR THE SCHOOL HOLIDAY
It will be closed between Thames Street and Balfour Road on five days for Surrey Highways to carry out resurfacing works.
** UPDATE 8 AUGUST – RESURFACING WORK DONE! **
New start date 5 August: Postponed from 16 July 2019, to avoid a clash with the last week of school term.
Parents need car access to St Charles Borromeo in the last week of term to collect children’s possessions. Surrey County Councillor Tim Oliver has been extremely helpful in getting the road closure date changed to accommodate school access.
RESURFACING NOW DURING THE SCHOOL HOLIDAY.
Duration: 5 days (Monday – Friday only), road closed from 9.30am – 4pm.
Look out for advance warning signs on site for any date changes or check www.roadworks.org and @ElmbridgeLC on Twitter.
Surrey Highways say they will make sure people can get to and from their house or business when it is safe to do so. Please talk to a member of Surrey Highways staff on site if you need help – they say “talking to our staff can solve most issues”.
The full length of Portmore Park Road will need to be closed to complete the areas of resurfacing.
Surrey Highways have been given extra funding to repair roads which have suffered damage due to bad weather. The money has been used to form a programme of works called the ‘Severe weather recovery programme’ which we are delivering as quickly as possible to try to bring the worst affected roads in Surrey up to an acceptable standard.
More information is available at www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport.
Surrey are giving residents as much notice as they can, but as the programme is moving quickly are not always able to give as much warning as we would like.
Delays in work
Work is sometimes delayed by bad weather. Surrey Highways will keep residents updated on any changes via the advance warning signs.
It is essential to keep the road free from parked vehicles. Please park somewhere else otherwise your vehicle may be towed away to a nearby road.
There will be some noise but Surrey Highways say they will try to keep this to a minimum.
