    I wonder which congestion planner at the county council decided to allow both Broadford Road and Trunley Heath Road to be closed over the same up to six-week period from today. It means the only way for cars to get from Godalming to Shalford is via clogging up the Guildford gyratory even more. Surely the “signage works” that require Trunley Heath Road to be closed could have been scheduled for a few weeks later so as not to potentially block both roads.

    And the relevant county councillor Matt Furniss showed a remarkably tin ear by responding on the local Facebook Group that Trunley Heath Road wasn’t the official diversion so everything was fine and dandy! Yes of course it’s not the official diversion because it has a width limit, but it is the obvious diversion for locals in their cars and small vans. Far better than further clogging Guildford’s inadequate road system.

    An SCC spokesperson responded to this comment writing: “The permits for these works are still at PAA (Provisional Advance Authorisation) stage. Were they to progress to PA (Permit Application) stage, the final stage of a permit application, they would be refused due to the reasoning outlined in our statement. I am not sure why they’re on the [SCC] bulletin, but I’ve flagged this with the Works Communications team.

    I’ve also spoken with a Streetworks officer who visited Unstead Lane, and they have confirmed that the works haven’t started.
