Summary of Project
The A24 connects London to the A27 on the south coast and is used by commuters and freight movement alike. The Local Growth Fund contributed to improvements to the A24 carriageway by resurfacing areas that have previously been water damaged by flooding of the River Mole. The repairs have improved the road surfaces and make them safer for all users.
Water management will prevent future damage to the carriageway now that repairs have been completed by improving the surrounding drainage systems. This has contributed to keeping nearby businesses and homes safe from any potential flooding brought on by extreme rain.
The project provides resilience to the Burford Bridge and Subway by repairing cracks and other structural deformities that have appeared over time. The finished product has ensured safer use by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
- 6km of roads resurfaced to improve safety.
- 10-12km of drainage work to future proof potential flooding events.
- New infrastructure including, gullies, soakaways, verges, pipes and kerbs
- Detailed inspection of the Burford Bridge and pedestrian underpass with the intention to determine flood proofing the area for the future.
