An excellent autumn ride encountered 2 sets of road works on 13/11/2019.

Pete had surveyed the route a day before and adjusted for conditions.  Last week and the first set of roadworks this week the workers let us through.

But the second set of workers was adamant that we could not pass, and thus an unacceptable diversion and delay.

https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/roadworks-and-maintenance/roadworks covers all WSCC ride areas,  explore the “delays and blocks” on top left, search for roads on top right.   Zoom and time functions covers areas and future periods.

In most cases where we find road blocks, we ask “could we walk through when there is a safer opportunity” and get let through. The railway code is the exception, and we just have to accept that.
