Motorists advised of abnormal load travelling through Surrey

Surrey Police is advising motorists to be aware of an abnormal load that will be travelling through part of the county on Saturday morning (December 7)

Two articulated lorries carrying a load of metal cylinders measuring 21m long will be escorted by two Surrey Police motorcycles on a route from Slyfield Industrial Estate in Guildford to Pease Pottage services in Crawley.

The journey is due to start at 8am and is going to take around four hours to complete. From Slyfield, the escort will travel on the A320 Woking Road, Clay Lane, A3, London Rd, Clandon Rd, A246, A24 and A264 through to its destination.

The load, which is too large to travel on the motorway, is eventually bound for Portslade Docks in Sussex. It will pass through Effingham, Bookham and Dorking and is expected to be slow moving.

Wherever possible disruption will be kept to a minimum however some congestion could be possible and motorists are asked to be patient if they do come across the convoy. Anyone travelling over this period to catch a flight or meet appointments are advised to allow sufficient additional time for their journeys.
