Road Information and Bus services

Road Information

  • Due to major works by Southern Gas Networks replacing the gas main, from 6th August to 10th October there will be traffic management in Randalls Road with multi-way signals; see SCC website.
  • Also in order that essential gas mains work to replace at risk iron pipe work, in Kingston Road from 6th August to 18th September, the road will be CLOSED from the junction of Dilston Road to the junction of Barnet Wood Lane in carriageway and footway, including the section over the rail bridge.
      Access to and from Cleeve Road will be unaffected.
    • The road will be closed in a northerly direction from Barnett Wood Lane (heading towards B & Q and Tesco) with a diversion signed using the A243.
    • The road will remain open in a southerly direction.
    • It is intended to maintain access to the industrial units to the south of the rail bridge from the A245 Kingston Road during the period of the one way system.

Note: I have been given three different dates for the completion of the Kingston Road works; the one above is that given on the SCC website.
Bus Information

  • At present I have been unable to find out how this will affect the bus services between Kingston Road and the Town.
  • There is a new timetable for the 479 bus service; from 2nd September there will be a new evening service and Sunday two hourly service.

Closure Kingston Rd Possible

Kingston Road closure due to replacement of gas mains – there will be possible closures of Kingston Road at the railway bridge so that essential gas main replacement can be carried out from 2nd August to 4th September. Diversions will be in place but there will be inevitable disruption and delays

Commuting Information

Dear Sir,

I am writing to let you know that we have recently updated our website to incorporate traffic information, which you might find helpful if you drive in London.

On the site, you will now find details of live traffic incidents and planned events and roadworks information up to two weeks in advance. To help you avoid traffic delays, information is displayed on a searchable map so it is easy to see if you are affected.

For real time updates to traffic information, follow us on twitter @TfLTrafficNews or please visit

Disruptive or badly-managed roadworks can also cause traffic delays. Report them and we will sort out problems on the roads managed by us or direct your report to the relevant borough to ensure action can be taken. Visit

Yours sincerely,

Garrett Emmerson
Chief Operating Officer, Surface Transport           

Your Buses, Your Say…Surrey Bus Review Phase 3

Surrey County Council will shortly be consulting on bus service changes in Epsom & Ewell, Mole Valley, Waverley and some services in Guildford. This will be phase 3 of the County Councils 3-year Bus Review Programme, which started in 2010.

We will run a three-month public consultation from 1 November 2011 to 31 January 2012 for your comments on the proposals that we put forward. Comments from the actual bus users form an important part of the process and will assist us in designing the revised network. We would therefore like to hear your comments and views.

Feedback from the consultation process and the costs of the revised services will then be included in a proposal that will be submitted to Surrey County Council’s cabinet, who will make the final decision. Changes to services will take effect in September 2012.

From 1st November 2011 details about the proposals to bus services, how to feed your comments in to the review and further information about the review process will be available at This website will also have details on the consultation sessions that will be held locally to discuss the proposals and listen to your individual views and suggestions.
