• Woldingham (CR3)
    Station Road

     

    Start date: 8 April 2019
    Approximate duration: 32 weeks

     

    Following the postponement of our work in January, we will shortly begin work to upgrade the gas network in Station Road, Woldingham.

    We’re investing £900,000 to replace our old gas mains and services with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.

    In consultation with Surrey County Council, our work will start on Monday 8 April and last approximately 32 weeks.

    From Monday 8 April, we’ll have two teams of engineers working in Station Road simultaneously to help minimise disruption.

    Northern work area – between Woldingham Road and Croft Road

    Our first team of engineers will be working in Station Road between its junctions with Woldingham Road and Croft Road for approximately 20 weeks.

    To ensure everyone’s safety, Station Road will be closed in sections around our work area as we progress southwards from Woldingham Road. Access will be maintained for residents, but a signed diversion route will be in place for through traffic.

    Due to carriageway restrictions, HGVs will need to follow our safe alternative diversion route via Woldingham Road, A22 Godstone Road, Hillbury Road, Westhall Road, The Green, Limpsfield Road, The Ridge and Northdown Road.

    We also need to install temporary traffic lights on Station Road for safety when we are working at its junction with Woldingham Road and Church Road. These lights will be manually controlled during peak times to manage traffic flow and will be in place for approximately two weeks from Monday 8 April.

    Southern work area – between Croft Road and Slines Oak Road

    Our second team will be working southwards from Station Road’s junction with Croft Road to Slines Oak Road for approximately 32 weeks.

    For everyone’s safety, we’ll need to install temporary traffic lights around our site as we progress along Station Road between these junctions.

    Once our work in Station Road is complete, we need to carry out further network upgrades in Woldingham, including the previously mentioned phase on Northdown Road. We’re continuing to plan this future essential work with Surrey County Council and we’ll provide details of this once confirmed.

    We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Woldingham residents and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
