Pavement Horizon close to covering 50 miles

Surrey County Council’s scheme to boost access to key community services is closing in on improving 50 miles of pavements.

Almost 46 miles of footpaths have benefited from a new surface with nearly two more miles due to be completed by the end of the month.

Among the latest to get the Pavement Horizon treatment are Woodhatch Road in Reigate, Station Road in Cobham, Kingston Road in Ashford and Laleham Road in Shepperton.

Cabinet Member for Highways John Furey launched the scheme last May at Brokes Crescent, Reigate, with the aim of helping people reach schools, hospital appointments and town centres by improving more than 200 miles of pavements.

Mr Furey said: “Money continues to be really tight but we’re still doing everything we can to improve local people’s daily lives.

“These pictures really demonstrate the big difference our Pavement Horizon scheme is already making for people, whether they’re going to hospital, walking their children to school or heading to the railway station.”
