Godstone Road Purley A22

Godstone Road, Purley - A22

The project was due to start on Tuesday 26 May and involved connecting a new main along Godstone Road, between the entrance of the Tesco store at Purley Road and the northern junction of Dale Road, with a full road closure in place. We understand that closing a major road like the A22 will never be welcome which is why we planned the work during the lockdown period when many businesses are closed and traffic volumes are significantly reduced.

However, this work is no longer going ahead and will be deferred to next year.

Many parties were involved in the planning and authorisation of these essential works and we received the final confirmation of go ahead on Friday 15 May, following which we wrote to over 3,000 customers to explain the implications. A few days later, support from some key parties was unfortunately retracted meaning that we are no longer in a position to carry out the work this year.

Please be assured that this project is very important to us and we will write to customers and update this page with more information when we have more details around the revised timescale next year.

We apologise for any confusion this situation has caused.
