Check out this 'cyclepath' running alongside the A3, is this an attempt to provide valuable cycling infrastructure in Surrey, or was it easy to lay with spare tarmac so that the council could say "look look, we have just built x many miles of dedicated, off road cycle facilities!
Oh yeah, and it is only acessible by walking over the bridge you see at the end of the video, as the bridge has steps all the way up and down! It does have a cycle sign at the start of the bridge though, which is why I ended up over on that side of the A3 instead of backtracking a little. Very helpful.
Still, it did nothing to dampen my spirits.
