Two more councils join permit scheme

Surrey News

A Surrey scheme to ease the frustration of delays for motorists will span 130 miles from next month after two more councils join.

When West Berkshire links up with the roadworks permit scheme launched by Surrey and East Sussex county councils, it will stretch from Lambourn in the west to Rye on the Sussex coast.

At the same time, Slough Borough Council will become part of the initiative, which puts local authorities in charge of who does work and when and means better co-ordination so South East roads are closed less often.

Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, John Furey, said: “We took control of approving roadworks because the traffic jams they can cause are incredibly frustrating for motorists and cost businesses money, so it’s great news that two more councils are joining.”
