Hogs Back still shut this morning for emergency repairs

If you travel on the Hogs Back - you might want to allow extra time for your journey.

It is now likely the A31 westbound from Guildford towards Farnham will stay shut all day today  - between the A3 and Puttenham.

It closed yesterday afternoon for emergency repairs - after the recent extreme heat melted the tarmac.

For now, diversions are in place using the B3000. 

There is no access to the A31 from the A3 or out of Guildford from Farnham Road.

Contractors are reporting that it is likely to remain closed for most of the day.

Surrey County Council said: "The section affected is along the westbound carriageway of the A31 between the A3 slip road and 300m past the Puttenham turning.

"We are now required to carry out emergency resurfacing of 3km of road on both lanes westbound."

The council said it would be closed at night: "The westbound carriageway will be closed from Thursday 22 June 2017 for seven nights between 9pm and 6am (excluding weekends)."

However, as of this morning it is still shut - and it is likely it will remain so for the rest of the day.

The council has this message for residents who live along the affected area: "Unfortunately due to the location of these works we are unable to maintain access for residents, except in emergencies.

"If you are a resident and have an emergency please contact us."
