Resurfacing

Digger’s Bridge.  The bridge by Weybridge station has been resurfaced – big improvement.  However, even when driving across it I noticed that it was very bumpy. This worries me because it seems that it was a full resurface and not a skim.  When a highway is given a full resurface it is usually very smooth – like Holstein Avenue where I live.  Even a cyclist cannot feel any bumps because the surface is as smooth as glass.  Because bridges are difficult to resurface given their location, I would have thought one would not want to maintain the location too often and therefore a full resurface would be provided.  Is the recent work a poorly done full resurface or a halfway measure?

Weybridge Point.  Place where Walton Lane, Weybridge meets Thames Street was been recently resurfaced.  Could this be an opportunity not to replace the overly “main highway” road markings used in the past?  I know that it is a bend but it is in a 20mph zone.  If it has to have markings could they at least be minimal?

  1. Awful repair – like a big dipper ride especially of on a bike! This done in a panic – without advance notice as it got missed in the lead up to the Surrey Bike event. It should be re-done at contractor’s expense!
