Bridge work begins in Cranleigh- hopefully no badgers!

The bridge in Elmbridge hasn’t been all it was cracked up to be for a long time.

Cllr  Liz Townsend has been on the safety case since becoming the area’s County Councillor. 

Concern has arisen over the safety of the bridge for years. HGV’s contractor vehicles have been pounding Elm Bridge daily on their way to large housing developments in the town in addition to the daily traffic.

Highway engineers took measures years ago to lighten the load by introducing one-way traffic with lights.

Bridge Repairs are coming soon – hopefully, none of these little perishers who seems to pop out regularly during works bridge works.
