Two routes out of Reigate up towards the M25 are affected by roadworks, as of Tuesday afternoon (19 March).
UK Power Networks has closed a short section of one of the lanes on Reigate Hill to work on underground equipment, and Wray Lane has been closed since the start of the month to enable SGN to carry out gas repairs.
As of Tuesday lunchtime both companies had crews working at their respective sites, and on Reigate Hill traffic was flowing freely.
Reigate Hill (A217)
UK Power Networks has closed a short section of southbound lane, down the hill from the Bridge House hotel, with traffic instead using one of the two northbound lanes.
A UK Power Networks spokesperson said today (19 March):
“Our engineers are carrying out repairs to some equipment on our underground network to maintain reliable power supplies for local homes and businesses.
A lane closure is needed to carry out the work, which started yesterday and we are aiming to complete our repairs before the weekend.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
Wray Lane continues to be closed to through traffic at the junction with Ridgegate Close, with residents having access through the no-entry signs at the top of the road.
An SGN spokesperson said on Monday afternoon (18 March):
“Our engineers are continuing emergency repair work to our gas main and it’s still too early to say how long that will take to complete.
The road will remain closed around our work area until a permanent repair has been made and the road surface is restored.”
Wray Lane forms a link up to the M25, with other roads noticeably busier since the closure at the start of the month, such as Raglan Road.
