M25 junction 8: junction improvement

Improving junction 8 of the M25.

Region:  South East
Start date:  September 2019
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  August 2020
Programme:  Junction Improvement programme

Progress report

The detailed design for the work at junction 8 has now been completed. The highway works fall under both Highways England and Surrey County Council authorities, so we are now engaged in detailed planning activity with Surrey County Council to ensure the scheme minimises disruption to all road users.

What's next?

Work is proposed to start in September 2019; and completion expected in September 2020.

Works will include:

  • upgrading the traffic signal installation throughout the junction
  • adding an extra lane on the A217 northbound approach
  • widening into the existing verge and extending the anti-clockwise exit slip road
  • adding an extra lane on the north circulatory section of the roundabout
  • widening lanes on the east and west bridge section of the roundabout
  • improving road signs and markings
  • widening and realignment on the A217 southbound to two lanes that merge prior to Wray Lane

Why we need this scheme

Junction improvement to ease congestion and manage the increasing volume of traffic on the M25.

The M25 junction 8 was opened for traffic in 1986. The junction sits atop Reigate Hill at the intersection of the M25 with the A217 and serves destinations towards both London and the south-coast. The signal-controlled junction is now operating above its design capacity which leads to traffic queues during peak hours, especially on the A217 and M25 eastbound off-slip.

Aims

  • upgrading the traffic signal installation throughout the junction
  • adding an extra lane on the A217 northbound approach
  • widening into the existing verge and extending the anti-clockwise exit slip road
  • adding an extra lane on the north circulatory section of the roundabout
  • widening lanes on the east and west bridge section of the roundabout
  • improving road signs and markings
  • widening and realignment on the A217 southbound to two lanes that merge prior to Wray Lane
