Surrey CC Fix 'nine rugby pitches of Road for Winter
Surrey County Council has fixed the equivalent of nine rugby pitches after earmarking funds to tackle winter road damage.
In September Surrey County Councils Cabinet allocated £5 million to fix more than 600 of the road surfaces most affected by ice and snow last winter.
So far the county council has completed 63725 square metres of repairs nine rugby pitches worth on 332 roads. Winter repair teams are working on another 278 roads.
John Furey Surrey County Councils Cabinet Member for Highways said: Keeping Surrey moving is essential and this council is working flat out to ensure our residents and businesses have safe and congestion-free roads to drive on.
As well as our five-year £100 million project to overhaul the roads in Surrey that need it most careful financial planning allows us to spend extra money on improving 200 miles worth of other roads that were damaged by expanding ice last year.
