A3 bridge repairs over 5 nights next week

The maintenance will be carried out over five nights from tomorrow on the bridge which carries the A3 over the A322 roundabout. The work will take place from Monday 7 October for five nights, finishing on the morning of Saturday 12 October.

All work will take place overnight between 10pm and 6am and in lanes with signage about the 10mph speed limit in place on approach to the work.

The work will involve the resurfacing of the westbound carriageway and then the replacement of a bridge joint which supports traffic on the A3. This means the bridge will continue to safely carry traffic on the A3 and the need for emergency work in the future will be reduced.

Cyclist assaulted near Guildford

A teenage cyclist was allegedly assaulted when he was riding along a country lane near Guilford on Tuesday.

The incident is said to have happened on Combe Lane in Shere on Tuesday afternoon at 4.20pm when the 17-year-old was overtaken by a car which then stopped further along the rural road.

A man is alleged to have got out of the passenger side of a silver hatchback and approached the cyclist, shouting at him. The victim was hit on the forehead and fell to the ground where he was then further punched and kicked.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged 20-21, 5ft 10” tall, medium build. He was a skin head, was clean shaven and wore a baggy black top and trousers.

The vehicle is described as a silver hatch back, either a Vauxhall Astra or Corsa, which was in good condition and a few years old.

This was a diabolical unprovoked attack on a young man enjoying a ride though the Surrey Hills close to the Olympic route. I am urging anyone who may have seen a silver car matching this description in or around the area, or who has any information which could help officers locate the suspect, to call me as soon as possible.
