M3 Closures - 5th May 2017 to 8th May 2017 and 19th May 2017 to 22nd May 2017

More disruption misery for M3 users I am afraid. Thank you to Cllr Mike Goodman for sending this information to me.

M3 junctions 2 to 4a smart motorway – weekend closures of M3 between junctions 2 and 3 in both directions.

We are writing to inform you that we will soon be lifting the steel beams into place as part of the reconstruction of Woodlands Lane Bridge at Windlesham, which sits across the M3 motorway around 2 miles east of junction 3. The work will take place over a weekend and will require the full closure of the M3 on both carriageways between junctions 2 and 3.

This is currently planned to take place from 9pm on Friday 5 May until 5.30am Monday 8 May 2017.

The work will primarily consist of using two cranes to erect and secure 12 beams across the carriageway onto the newly constructed columns to support a new bridge deck.

To minimize overall disruption we will also be carrying out 4,000 tons of low noise resurfacing in addition to the bridge works over this weekend.

An additional weekend closure at the same location is planned to take place from 9pm on Friday 19 May until 5.30am Monday 22 May 2017, in order to carry out a further 4,000 tons of low noise resurfacing and complete the installation of safety barriers.

We will also take these opportunities to carry out other critical work in the area which in return will help us achieve our scheme completion of the end of June 2017.

Please note that these works are weather dependent and should weather conditions prevent this work from going ahead on these dates there is a contingency weekend planned to take place from 9pm Friday 9 June until 5.30am Monday 12 June 2017.

We will be announcing these motorway closure dates to your ward members from the 27 April 2017.

Local residents, customers and stakeholders will be informed of the closures and relevant diversions by means of motorway signage, media announcements, social media, letters, posters and leaflets at appropriate locations including motorway service stations.

Please note that this letter has been sent via e-mail only. If you would like a hard- copy, please let us know and we will post one to you immediately.

If you have any questions, or if you would like any further information about the scheme, please do not hesitate to contact me, I can be contacted at:

Meeting with MP for Surrey Heath - Michael Gove

A very useful part of the county council election campaign is that I have now spoken to an incredible amount of residents in Mytchett, Frimley Green and Deepcut about a very wide range of local issues. Some of those issues either require the Involvement / intervention of our MP or the issues cross over between the county council and the government.

I think it is very important that our MP is made aware of any local issues so that where appropriate, he can make sure that our voice is heard loud and clear, so the opportunity of hearing a lot of wide ranging views from across the community to pass on to our MP was too good to pass up.

Michael is a busy fella, as am I, so it was proving difficult due to diary conflicts to get an un-rushed meeting with him. So he kindly invited me to the Commons this morning were I was able to discuss many of the issues that you have been discussing with me when I have been out on the campaign trail.

After my meeting I recorded a video which gives some details about our meeting which you can view at my facebook page here: Paul Deach update on meeting with Michael Gove

Frimley Green Traffic Lights Update

In my last email news letter I updated residents on the current position in respect of the Frimley Green traffic lights with this video.

As promised in the video, today I met with Cllr John Furey (Cabinet Member for Highways at Surrey County Council) to discuss the Frimley Green traffic lights and got him to agree to meet with lead campaigning residents about the issues. I have posted a short video on my facebook page.

Whatever happens at the election I will make sure residents are kept informed of any progress.

Latest Deepcut Development Works Update

Next week on Tuesday 18/04/17, UK Power Solutions are commencing works on Deepcut Bridge road, to the south of the junction of Newfoundland Road and the existing electrical substation sited approximately 200m south of this junction.

They are installing new cables which will be placed in the footway if possible but failing this they may be in the carriageway. It will not be known until trial holes are done.

The traffic will be controlled by 2 way lights which I believe will be during off peak hours only.

These works will be ongoing for approximately 2 weeks.

Please adjust your essential journeys accordingly.

Update on proposal to put traffic lights in Frimley Green

For those who may be new to this email list and things going on locally, there is a proposal to put traffic lights in Frimley Green which are part of the highways infrastructure works as part of the Princess Royal Barracks development where work has already begun to build 1235 new houses.

The proposal has caused a lot of concern, in particular with Frimley Green residents who think the proposal will only add to the traffic problems, cause rat runs in the adjoining roads and there is concern that some of the green may be lost as a result.

This afternoon I have posted a video update in respect of this on my facebook page at You do not have to be on facebook to view the video so if you don't use facebook Just click here - Paul Deach - Frimley Green Traffic Lights Update.

Meeting With Skanska - Deepcut Development

This afternoon I met with the developers (SKANSKA) of the Princess Royal Barracks / Mindenhurst Development with the aim of trying to make the information flow a little better.

Residents may recall I had arranged with the developers that they would let me know in advance of any likely disruptions so that I can communicate these and therefore allowing residents to adjust their essential journeys accordingly. This has been working well but I think it can be improved and the developers and I agreed a way in which we think this will work better. The meeting was very constructive and on behalf of residents wish to thank SKANSKA for working with us to help keep disruption to a minimum.

Some information will be emailed out via this email list shortly ahead of some works scheduled to take place shortly.

Video thoughts from the campaign trail

Today my daughter and I have spent several hours campaigning in Mytchett, delivering leaflets and chatting to residents. Thank you to everyone who stopped to chat and who were kind to little Izzy. We recorded this little video while in Mytchett this morning - Video in Mytchett

After recording that video we got speaking to quite a lot of other residents. Its so nice to hear that the emails I send out are so well received and appreciated. Several other issues came up so I have recorded this video with some thoughts I want to share with everyone - Thoughts from the campaign trail

Traveller Incursion Underway at the London Road Recreation Ground in Camberley

This evening I have been informed of a Traveller Incursion which is underway at the London Road Recreation Ground in Camberley. Unfortunately I do not have much information at this stage, however, I do know the Police are aware and have been in attendance.

Surrey Heath Borough Council along with partner agencies are normally very swift at dealing with issues of this nature and will no doubt update me tomorrow when they know more.

As soon as I have more information, I will post details to my facebook page at
