We will keep you up-to-date on any traffic or travel disruption during any bad winter weather we may have.
Preparing for Winter
Our Winter Service started at the beginning of October and our crews are on standby 24/7 to take action if needed. On our website you can find out how our highways team is preparing for winter, as well as seeing where grit bins are located near to you, and which roads we salt in your area.
How you can help
Clearing ice and snow from pavements and paths
If we do get any snow, you can help make winter easier for everyone by clearing the ice and snow from the pavements around your home and business and outside your neighbour's home if they need help. Clearing snow can be carried out without fear of legal action so long as no hazards are created which might cause damage or injury to other road or pavement users. However, there are some important tips to bear in mind, please see our our practical advice from highways engineers on how to clear snow and ice from pavements and public spaces.

Surrey's major maintenance is planned in advance. Please take a look at our planned maintenance page for the recently updated programmes of work for 2014-15. If you are looking for information about works happening in your area right now, please see the roadworks page.
