More than 300 roads safer thanks to winter damage fund

 9367365875_62ab6d6eb8_zSurrey County Council has fixed the equivalent of nine rugby pitches after earmarking funds to tackle winter road damage.

In September, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet allocated £5 million to fix more than 600 of the road surfaces most affected by ice and snow last winter.

So far, the county council has completed 63,725 square metres of repairs – nine rugby pitches’ worth – on 332 roads. Winter repair teams are working on another 278 roads.

John Furey, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Keeping Surrey moving is essential, and this council is working flat out to ensure our residents and businesses have safe and congestion-free roads to drive on.

“As well as our five-year, £100 million project to overhaul the roads in Surrey that need it most, careful financial planning allows us to spend extra money on improving 200 miles’ worth of other roads that were damaged by expanding ice last year.”
