A3 average speed cameras will be part of £6m safety improvements

Published at 4:50pm 18th January 2019.

Work has begun on £6m of safety improvements on the A3 in Guildford, which includes installing average speed cameras.

Highways England will also widen the southbound exit slip at the Stoke Interchange and extend the northbound exit slip for the University.

It is hoped the changes will improve safety, while also relieving congestion and improving traffic flows.

Average speed cameras will be installed on the northbound 50mph speed limit section through Guildford, between the Hogs Back and Wooden Bridge junction.

During the project overnight lane closures, slip road closures and full road closures will be in place, with work due to be concluded by 28 June.

A3 Works

Highways England project manager Alessio Mancino said:

“The A3 through Guildford is used to make around 85,000 journeys every day, with many drivers using the A3 just to get from one side of town to the other, staying on the A3 only for a mile or so.

“Queues at junctions regularly stretch back onto the main carriageway, causing delays and raising the risk of collisions, with a high proportion of traffic approaching Guildford from the south breaking the 50mph speed limit.

“The steps we are taking will help to address each of these issues and make journeys on the A3 safer, less frustrating and more reliable.”

Signage and drainage along the slip roads will also be upgraded under the scheme and the existing footpath between the slips will be closed while a replacement is installed along the exit slip road up to Egerton Road roundabout.
