Surrey's Main Road Network ~ An overview
Running through the heart of Surrey is part of the
M25, London's orbital Motorway (shown on the map above) , connecting the towns of Reigate, Leatherhead, Chertsey and Staines. This road provides excellent connections between all of the capital's surrounding home counties and main roads into London.  However it's very much a victim of its own success and despite many re-widening programmes this essential road can be more like a moving carHandy speed hints! park than a motorway at busy times!  Beware of variable speed limits and their frequent speed camera enforcement. (See our page on known Speed Camera areas ~ The Good Move Guide encourages safe driving ~ so don't get caught, keep your speed down and drive carefully).

The furthest parts of the county are less than an hour away from central London using both car or rail transport, but remember the ever increasing road congestion particularlyElephants remember! within the Greater London boundary demands adequate allowance must be made when traveling by road.  Most day time hours now produce heavy traffic and at very busy times some journeys can frequently take twice as long.

The route of the M25 in Surrey passes close to both London Airports at Heathrow and Gatwick making this a particularly busy stretch of the motorway.  Within Surrey the main roads out of London are the M3 to the south west and the A3, A24 and M23 to the south. 

The location of the county means that it lies between London and the South Coast  thereby providing some of the finest venues for a variety of leisure interests within a reasonable travelling distance.
