A delegation of South Korean politicians and councillors visited Surrey to learn about the county council’s transport policies.
The visitors from Gyeonggi Province wanted to find out how Surrey County Council maintains and improves its roads, tackles road safety issues and how it manages public transport.
The delegation of councillors and local government officials were also taken through some of the transport challenges presented by the London 2012 Olympic Games, during a presentation at County Hall in Kingston on Wednesday, January 11.
Denise Saliagopoulos, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: “It’s encouraging to know that Surrey County Council’s good reputation stretches as far as South Korea. The fact that our guests wanted to learn from the expertise of our officers is testament to the high quality of staff we have working here.”
