Pavement Repair: Vale Road traffic lights

Planned works:

Surrey County Council (SCC) Highways has issued an advanced notice of  Temporary Traffic lights along Vale Road. From Monday 8th January 2024 pavement reconstruction and repair works will begin and are expected to last for 3 months.  Works will take place between Station Approach and Ash Vale Bridge.

Information to residents and Businesses

Advanced warning signs will be displayed, and the temporary closure will only operate when the relevant traffic signs are displayed. Access for residents, the emergency services, pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained at all times. SCC advise to first talk to a member of staff on-site if you need help as they can solve most issues.

Surrey Highways delivered a notice to all households on Vale Road advising that:

It is illegal to drive over the pavement to access your property unless there is a vehicle crossover. If you require access to park on your property, you will need to apply for a crossover. Vehicle crossovers can only be approved and constructed by application to the council; they will not be included as part of this scheduled work. If your property has been previously accessible by an unofficial vehicle crossover, due to an uneven or broken kerb for example, this may be removed or altered as part of these works, as we may need to adjust or raise the existing kerb levels. We will not be raising existing vehicle crossings. For more information or to apply for a crossover visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/permits-and-licences/vehicle-crossovers-or-dropped-kerbs”.

Please cut back any overgrown vegetation, tree branches, hedges, or shrubs from your garden that are hanging or growing over the pavement to expose the full width of the pavement service before work starts.

Please do not park in the area where the team are working. These works will be carried out in stages on the road. We will try to give residents prior warning to move vehicles by marking these works area with cones and barriers and by placing no parking flyers on vehicles.
