Water Lane works due to start on Thursday 7 March

Update - the works are now due to start on Thursday 7 March.

Original message:

Major works to make improvements to Water Lane and the A325 roundabout are due to start on Monday (4 March) and last for approximately 10 weeks.

Various lane closures will be in place on Water Lane and the A325 dual carriageway throughout the works. There are also overnight closures on the Water Lane eastbound carriageway planned from Monday 29 April to Thursday 4 May.

To improve safety, and promote walking and cycling, Surrey County Council will be installing traffic lights with a push button pedestrian and cyclist crossing (known as a toucan crossing) to replace the existing crossing point with islands near the roundabout. The road will be widened to three lanes with clearer road markings to ease queuing traffic and help drivers get into the correct lane.

To deliver the improvements, works will include excavating the road and pavement, installing the new traffic lights, and properly surfacing and finishing the road and pavement.

The works are part of the Farnham Infrastructure Programme and have been funded by the Community Infrastructure Levy – money from property developers to fund local infrastructure improvements.
