National Highways has confirmed today that plans to upgrade junction 10 on the M25, one of the busiest in the country, are going on show next week.
National Highways will be holding a series of public information events where people will be able to hear more details about the first phase of the work, which starts in September. The first event is next Sunday 26th June in Guildford town centre.
The scheme was given the go-ahead by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps MP last month.
National Highways senior project manager Simon Elliott said:
“This upgrade will not only deliver improvements for drivers, but there will be huge benefits for local people, equestrians and walkers alike. We have worked on our plans not only so that the scheme makes a real difference for the 300,000 drivers using the interchange each day, but we are undertaking a major restoration of the heathland which will have a huge positive impact on the local community and visitors to the area.
“We are holding public information events starting next Sunday in Guildford town centre so people can come and speak to the project team and find out more about our plans, and what to expect when we start work in September.”
As well as the in-person events, there will also be virtual ones. Details on these, as well as more about the scheme, including visualisations and a virtual information portal, can be found on the project website:
