What we are doing

To help seal and protect the pavement on Longpoles Road, Cranleigh we will be spreading a thin waterproofing layer on the existing surface of the pavement. This is known as a ‘slurry seal’. There will be delays whilst we carry out these works.

Information for residents and businesses

Works will be taking place on Longpoles Road, Cranleigh, as indicated on the map. There will be delays whilst we carry out our works.

We will make sure you can get to and from your house or business when it is safe to do so. Talk to a member of our staff on site if you need help – talking to our staff can solve most issues.

Please take extra care during this time and ensure that you do not walk or drive on the wet surface. The wet sections of footway will be closed off until it has dried. Please ensure that you and your families’ shoes are free from material before entering your home, as this can stick to them and mark your carpet or flooring. Please also check the paws of your pets before they go inside.

The pavement will be sprayed to minimise weed growth with herbicide treatment prior to the start of our works. We are unable to use strong weed killer as this contaminates the soil and water table. If weeds grow through the new surface, we will return to carry out an additional spray.

Pedestrian traffic management will be in place to cater for the closures. An alternative route will be provided.

Overgrown vegetation

If there are any tree branches, hedges or shrubs from your garden that are hanging or growing over the pavement, please cut them right back.

Delays in work

Due to the fast-moving nature of this type of work, dates can vary from the ones advertised on this leaflet. Our contractor will deliver their own leaflet the day before they are due to work on your pavements in order to keep you informed. We will also be regularly updating with the latest dates, as we have them.


It is essential to keep the pavement free from parked vehicles. it prevents us needing to return to the road to carry out additional repairs or to tow your vehicle away to a nearby road. You will still be able to park on your drive and access to drives will be maintained; but there may be a delay getting on and off through the works. If you have any special requirements, please speak to the team on site. Please allow extra time for journeys.

Bogus callers

There will be some noise but we will try to keep this to a minimum.
