A3 Guildford exit closed this weekend

Published at 12:48pm 25th July 2019. (Updated at 12:50pm 25th July 2019)

Drivers are warned of disruption in Guildford from tomorrow (July 26) through the weekend, as the A3 exit slip southbound is closed.

The exit is being shut from 10 pm on Friday night until 6am Monday morning (July 29) as part of ongoing work to widen the road at the Stoke Interchange.

The work will include a safety barrier, signage, widening and resurfacing, which cannot be done safely using only lane closures.

Highways England says it is hoping to complete the scheme ahead of schedule, by undertaking the work over the weekend, to reduce the impact on road users.

A signed diversion will be in place via the University Interchange then via Guildford centre.

The scheme is to allow for better traffic flows through the junction, reducing the tailbacks on the slip road and dual carriageway.

It incorporates improvements in the traffic signals in conjunction with Surrey County Council.

The closure is subject to change - please check the yellow signs placed in advance at the junction for confirmation of the closures dates/timings.
