  • Do remember that the M25 J10 J11 is closed in both directions from 9 pm on Friday 12th July to 6 am on Monday 15th July. Local roads will be busier as a result.
  • National Highways attended our July Parish Council meeting. We were given an overview of the project as a whole by Jonathan Wade, the project manager for the scheme, who reiterated that the bulk of the work is still due to be completed in summer 2025. We stressed our concern about the many local issues relating to the NH works but particularly the huge number of vehicles displaced by the roadworks and therefore using Ockham Road North, Ockham Lane and Old Lane. We asked NH for their suggestions to reduce the volume of traffic diverting on our local Ockham roads. This matter has been raised at various times before but recently in person on 18th June, in writing on 21st June and again at the PC meeting on 9th July. It was disappointing that we were told by Mr Wade that it was not a priority although he did promise to think about it. We will keep pressing forward on this.

  • For your forward planning, NH have told us: the B2039 Ockham Road North is planned to be closed to all northbound traffic at its junction with the Ockham Park Roundabout. The closure is for Affinity water main works and to alter the approach to the roundabout, and will extend over a distance of about 1⁄3 km. This closure is planned to come into effect on 22nd July and remain in place for 9 weeks until 20th September. It will be possible to leave Ockham Park Roundabout heading south towards Ockham and Horsley but not travel in the opposite direction.

    The Parish Council don’t hold a regular monthly meeting during August although as ever, we will be continuing behind the scenes. We hope for happy summer weeks ahead for all.
