A25 Reigate Road : Road Safety Improvements

Surrey County Council (SCC) : Highways Consultation

The SCC Road Safety team, working within Surrey Highways, is working on delivery of a programme of “safety improvements” along the stretch of the A25 Reigate Road between the High Street in Reigate and the Cockerel roundabout in Dorking.

Surrey Highways has secured funding from the UK Government Department for Transport towards the cost of the programme and is forecasting the work will be complete by March 2025.

A limited amount of information about the 16 schemes which make up this programme of safety improvements, has recently been published on the SCC website.  You are encouraged to take a few moments to read the descriptions under each of the scheme headings.

A consultation is currently underway for scheme 14, work planned for the stretch of A25 Reigate Road between Flanchford Road and Reigate High Street.  You have an opportunity to have your say – you just need to visit the consultation website to express your views – you will find a link to the consultation within the description of scheme 14. 

However you travel between Buckland and Reigate, whether on foot, or on two or more wheels you will be impacted by the changes so please take the time to read about what is planned and have your say before the consultation closes on Sunday 14th July.

If you have any thoughts on schemes one and five, which relate to safety improvements at the Brockham Lane Junction and in Dorking, make a note in readiness for the promised consultations, the timing of which have yet to be announced.  

If, having read the information on the SCC website you have any comments and/or concerns relating to any of the other schemes or feel more details need to be provided; as Surrey Highways does not appear to be making any commitment to consult on these schemes, please share your comments and/or concerns and any requests for more information to both SCC Cllr Helyn Clack and Buckland Parish Council.

Submitting reports to Surrey Highways

SCC Highways Engineers have informed your parish council that when a programme of works is being prepared, reports submitted by residents (via www.surreycc.gov.uk or by calling 0300 200 1003) are taken into account.   If you identify an issue or concern relating to any part of a highway in Buckland, whether related to the main carriageway, roadside footway, roadside verge, traffic signage or drainage please submit a report.
