Around 18 miles of footpaths have been overhauled in the first four months of Surrey County Council’s Pavement Horizon project – nearly the equivalent of driving from central London to Esher.

Pavements at Hurstleigh Drive in Redhill and Wallace Close in Guildford are among those to benefit from a smooth new surface.

Work has also been completed on one side of The Avenue in Sunbury-on-Thames and at Ellesmere Drive, Weybridge.

It comes after Cabinet Member for Highways John Furey launched the scheme at the start of May at Brokes Crescent, Reigate, with the aim of improving access to schools, hospitals, doctors’ surgeries and town centres.

More than 200 miles of pavements will be covered under the £20 million programme, which will last up to six years.

Mr Furey said: “Money may be tight because of growing demand for services like adult social care but this project really shows that there are still plenty of things we can do to benefit people in their everyday lives – and covering almost the distance from central London to Esher in four months bears testament to that.”
