Godstone Road Purley A22

Godstone Road, Purley - A22

As set out in our current Business Plan, we have made a pledge to reduce the risk of supply failures. By 2025, our goal is for 100 per cent of properties in our supply area to be supplied by more than one treatment works.

We are investing £10 million to lay new or improve existing pipelines between some of our key treatment works and pumping stations, to make sure we deliver on this promise and provide a more resilient service to our customers.

As part of this, we need to lay a new section of main along the A22 Godstone Road, Purley, next summer. To make sure this work is delivered as smoothly as possible we will be conducting some investigation works in January 2023.

We will be digging trial holes for three nights on Friday 27, Saturday 28, and Sunday 29 January 2023.  The investigation work will allow us to plan for the summer works more effectively, making sure they run as smoothly as possible, with minimal disruption. This work will be carried out by our delivery partner Clancy.

The trial holes work will require a full road closure, from the bridge near the Tesco roundabout to the northern junction of Dale Road on the A22. The road will be closed from 9pm to 5am on all three nights (27 -29 January), finishing at 5am on Monday 30 January. We will have the road fully open from 5am each day. Below is a diversion plan for the hours between 9pm-5am. We will also be closing Warren Road after the junction with Approach Road to help safely manage traffic in the area. The official diversion route and closure of Warren Road have been requested by the highway authorities.

However, Warren Road will be open for traffic from the lights on Godstone Road/Downs Court Road. Drivers will be able to get to the rear of Purley Station as well as their properties on Friends Road. We'll only be closing it after the Approach Road junction.

Due to diversions needing to follow the same type of road, we have agreed one with the Highways Authority which will follow the A23 down to Redhill where it joins the A25. The A25 can then be followed until you join the A22 in Godstone which can be followed up to meet our road closure from the other side. This is the diversion if you’re starting from the Tesco side of the closure.

If you are starting from Dale Road side of the diversion, please follow the A22 down to Godstone where you can join the A25 to Redhill. From there take the A23 up towards Tesco, Purley.

We'll try to keep noise to a minimum while we work but due to heavy machinery we need to use, you may hear us working for short periods during the night.
