I am writing to make you aware of our forthcoming upgrade of our gas network in Dorking Road, Epsom. This essential work involves the replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure we continue to provide a safe and reliable gas supply to the local area. Our contractor KLT Construction will undertake this work on our behalf.
So that we can minimise disruption, we have carefully consulted and planned our works in partnership with Surrey County Council. We have agreed to start our work on 30 July, and last approximately 3 weeks. We’ll be working in Dorking Road between the junctions of Orchard Gardens and White Horse Drive. To ensure everyone’s safety, we need to close the two pedestrian crossing points within our work area. Pedestrians will be diverted to alternative crossing points nearby. We may also need to install temporary 2-way traffic lights for safety and to maintain traffic flow.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Epsom businesses and residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.

The Borough Council has worked with the Surrey Waste Partnership to secure three small electrical item recycling banks for residents.
The banks have been sited at in Christ Church car park(Christ Church Road), Stoneleigh Broadway (by the library) and Depot Road car park (by the other recycling banks).
Items, such as kettles, toasters, hairdryers, radios, etc, will be taken to specialist recycling companies for dismantling and recycling of individual materials/components.
The ‘Recycling out and about’ page of EEBC has been updated.

The UK Government has committed to end the sale of all new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040 as part of the UK’s plan to reduce air pollution from transport emissions which can damage the public’s health, the environment and contribute to climate change.
In response, Surrey County Council is consulting on two draft strategies –
Electric Vehicle Strategy which highlights opportunities to expand the public charging point network and support the increased use of electric vehicles.
Low Emissions Transport Strategy which will help to improve air quality in Surrey through the transport network and reduce emissions county-wide.
The strategies aim to:
- Highlight the positive effect electric vehicles and a sustainable transport network can have towards reducing harmful emissions and improving air quality in Surrey.
- Identify ways to expand the public charging point network.
- Minimise emissions from new developments through the planning process.
- Reduce emissions from Surrey County Council services and assets.
- Both strategies form part of the Surrey Transport Plan which will help to work towards a more sustainable, low emission transport network. To view the documents and share your views or for more information, visit the Surrey County Council website by 26 August 2018.
