M3 Closures - 5th May 2017 to 8th May 2017 and 19th May 2017 to 22nd May 2017

More disruption misery for M3 users I am afraid. Thank you to Cllr Mike Goodman for sending this information to me.

M3 junctions 2 to 4a smart motorway – weekend closures of M3 between junctions 2 and 3 in both directions.

We are writing to inform you that we will soon be lifting the steel beams into place as part of the reconstruction of Woodlands Lane Bridge at Windlesham, which sits across the M3 motorway around 2 miles east of junction 3. The work will take place over a weekend and will require the full closure of the M3 on both carriageways between junctions 2 and 3.

This is currently planned to take place from 9pm on Friday 5 May until 5.30am Monday 8 May 2017.

The work will primarily consist of using two cranes to erect and secure 12 beams across the carriageway onto the newly constructed columns to support a new bridge deck.

To minimize overall disruption we will also be carrying out 4,000 tons of low noise resurfacing in addition to the bridge works over this weekend.

An additional weekend closure at the same location is planned to take place from 9pm on Friday 19 May until 5.30am Monday 22 May 2017, in order to carry out a further 4,000 tons of low noise resurfacing and complete the installation of safety barriers.

We will also take these opportunities to carry out other critical work in the area which in return will help us achieve our scheme completion of the end of June 2017.

Please note that these works are weather dependent and should weather conditions prevent this work from going ahead on these dates there is a contingency weekend planned to take place from 9pm Friday 9 June until 5.30am Monday 12 June 2017.

We will be announcing these motorway closure dates to your ward members from the 27 April 2017.

Local residents, customers and stakeholders will be informed of the closures and relevant diversions by means of motorway signage, media announcements, social media, letters, posters and leaflets at appropriate locations including motorway service stations.

Please note that this letter has been sent via e-mail only. If you would like a hard- copy, please let us know and we will post one to you immediately.

If you have any questions, or if you would like any further information about the scheme, please do not hesitate to contact me, I can be contacted at:

Deepcut Bin Collections

Bin collections in Deepcut have always been a challenge for the councils refuse collection contractors in particular at Dettingen Park where they sometimes are unable to get their vehicles down some of the streets due to the way some residents park their cars. This has a knock on effect to the efficiency of the service to other areas.

The refuse crews have found that by adjusting the time they collect from Dettingen Park to the morning, that the access issues are less of a problem. Therefore, residents should make sure thier bins are put out the night before in order that they do not miss the collection. This applies to all in Deepcut (Including the Service Families Area) as the crews are likely to be in the whole area much earlier.

Some Street Lights To Be Switched Off From Midnight to 5 AM

Thanks to Cllr Bill Chapman (Surrey County Council) for sharing this important news.

Extreme financial pressures on Surrey County Council is forcing it to switch-off some street lights from midnight until 5 am.

The timetable for implementation can be found at: Part Night Lighting Programme

You can download a link to all the streets in Surrey Heath that will be affected: Part Night Lighting Programme - Phase 1 - Surrey Heath

You’ll see the lights in Surrey Heath are due to start going off from 1st December in what will be a staggered schedule.

There are some good FAQs covering the concerns and suggestions that people have had:

www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/road-maintenance-and-cleaning/street-lights-traffic-signals-and-signs/street-lights/part-night-streetlighting-consultation

This also gives information on how the decision is taken to switch lights off – essentially each road gets a safety assessment, in which the police are involved.
