465 Bus Diversions

Hawks Hill Free Shuttle Connecting with Service 465 in Leatherhead Town Centre

With the Young Street Closure bus service 465 will be diverted between Leatherhead town centre and Givons Grove via Leret Way, The Crescent and Dorking Road, not serving North Street, Bridge Street, Guildford Road/Hawks Hill and Young Street.

A free shuttle bus funded and arranged by Surrey County Council will be operated by Reptons Coaches (Tel: 01372 452330) Mondays to Saturdays 0700 to 1900 hrs between The Ridgeway and Leatherhead Station via the normal service 465 route, serving all stops. This will run approximately every 30 minutes.

Passengers for Chessington and Kingston should change to service 465 at Leatherhead Station forecourt. Passengers for Mickleham and Dorking should alight at Lidl (Stop R) and catch the 465 in Leret Way at stop U.

Passengers returning from Kingston, Chessington, Mickleham and Dorking should alight from the 465 at Leret Way and catch the shuttle at Stop S in North Street.

Bus services 408 and 478 will continue to operate as normal along Guildford Road/Hawks Hill.

Proposal for HS4Air High Speed Rail Line between Gatwick and Heathrow

A new high speed rail line which would allow people to travel between Heathrow and Gatwick in just 15 minutes would see tunnels dug under the Surrey Hills and a train line built alongside the M25.

The proposal, named HS4Air, would cut through a large swathe of Surrey, running from just north of Heathrow to Gatwick and then east to Ashford in Kent.

There would be three sections of tunnel, running under part of Mole Valley, Gatwick, and under Staines and Heathrow.

The rest of the route would be overground and after leaving Gatwick travelling east, it would would cut across the A22 between Newchapel and Blindley Heath, past Lingfield to Edenbridge where it would head along the existing railway between Tonbridge and Ashford, to connect up with the forthcoming HS2 line.

Engineering firm Expedition and architects Weston Williamson have submitted the proposal in answer to a call for private sector projects by the Department for Transport (DfT).
