Highways News

Surrey Highways are now publishing a weekly bulletin of road maintenance in the area. This includes Ashtead but also surrounding villages and towns.

(SCC often change this web link so if you get an Error 404 message please let me know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)


Highways have advised that it may be worth noting that they do try and put the most up to date information in the document at the time of issue, however things are subject to change for all sorts of reasons, including emergencies, breakdowns (plant and equipment etc) and last but not least, the weather!

It is not always possible to include every small piece of work that they do as this is often of a reactive nature and those works tend to be planned on a more day to day or even hourly basis for emergencies and Highway safety considerations which are beyond the scope of this bulletin. 


For details on roadworks, present and future, plus works by the utility companies go to www.roadworks.org and type in the stem of the Post Code e.g. KT21.
