A list of projects to ease congestion on Surrey's roads has been revealed.

Surrey County Council said the county's roads carry 66% more traffic than the national average.

The authority hopes the 16 projects, which include returning some one-way systems to two-way and improving public transport, will also boost business.

Councillor John Furey said: "Improving transport infrastructure is key to boosting economic growth in the coming years."

The proposals include improvements to the Epsom town centre gyratory, adding new pedestrian and cycle links, and converting Runnymede Roundabout, where the A308 and A30 converge, to traffic light control.
