Roadworks in Cranleigh High Street
A number of Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce members have expressed concerns about the duration and extent of advertised roadworks in Cranleigh High Street this summer, and the potential impact these might have on trading.
On behalf of our members, we have spoken to UK Power Networks to get the details of their plans.
UK Power Networks have applied for three separate permits for work, to upgrade the high voltage electricity network and use two-way traffic control signals. Two of these permits relate to Rowland Road; an area opposite the Christopher Robin Sure Start Day Nursery from 14th August to 4th September, and by Glebelands School from 24th July to 21st August.
The permit which appears to have the biggest potential impact on the High Street covers the area from the junction with Rowland Road to 58 High Street (opposite the Post Office), from 24th July to 21st August.
UK Power Networks have committed to making sure all stakeholders are aware of the works. They will be carrying out letter drops to businesses and residences in the affected area and also making visits.
They have committed to minimise the length of any carriageway excavations to 50m, in order to retain access to premises for deliveries and customers.
If you have any queries, please call the UK Power Networks projects team on 0203 3241460. The works reference is KZ50020199955 (this is a Surrey County Council reference) and the project reference is 60993559.
