Improvements on the M25 junction 10/A3 Wisley interchange are well underway.
Roads Minister, Richard Holden MP, was invited to meet the team and see the progress that has been made on the scheme so far.
The visit came at an exciting time, as foundation work on the Wisley Lane link bridge has started. In the future, this road will no longer join directly onto the busy A3 and will massively improve safety at the junction.
"These improvements will boost links to major economic hubs like Heathrow or the ports in Kent, making it easier for businesses moving goods across the country as well as small businesses across Surrey and the Southeast and families going on holiday too."Richard Holden, MP
Junction 10 is one of busiest in the country and experiences long queues and heavy congestion on a daily basis. It also has one of the highest recorded collision rates across England’s motorway and major A roads and the improvements we're making will reduce collisions at this junction by around a third.
The project will also create better connections and smoother traffic flows for the 300,000 drivers who use it every day and see the restoration of over 14 hectares of heathland.
"It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Holden to site so that he could see the great work we’re doing to improve this junction. I’m sure having seen the works first-hand; he shares my confidence in the benefits this improvement will bring to people and businesses once complete in 2025."Nicola Bell, National Highways Executive Director of Major Projects
