New road to reduce traffic at Slyfield Industrial Estate

Published at 3:00pm 22nd February 2019.

A new road is to be built to reduce traffic in and around the Slyfield Industrial Estate.

It's hoped it will also enable the relocation of Guildford Borough Council’s depot and Thames Water’s sewage works, as well as help bring forward planned brownfield housing developments.

Balfour Beatty have been appointed as the construction team to build the new road, which is expected to be completed by early 2020.

Work is set to begin later this month.

Leader of the Council and Lead Councillor for Planning and Regeneration, Cllr Paul Spooner said:

"The new internal road is key to the wider regeneration of the area, serving as a catalyst for reinvestment in the estate creating more job opportunities and unlocking the potential of brownfield land being utilised for new housing as laid out in our Local Plan.

"While it’s taken longer than anticipated to get to this point, it is testament to the commitment of the Council to its key priorities of Place Making and Community that we are delivering this important project."

Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Councillor for Infrastructure and Governance, Cllr Matt Furniss says: 

"On completion the scheme will have a hugely positive impact on improving traffic flow in and around Slyfield.

"It will also enable us to update and move the depot to a better location and bring forward housing on our largest brownfield site, which in turn will better serve our current residents and businesses and those companies who may move to the area in the future."

Cllr Furniss added traffic management would be put in place and that the council would do all they can to "minimise any disruption throughout the duration of the works".
