The Highways Agency is to move its national headquarters from Dorking to Guildford in Surrey.

The agency has signed a 10-year lease to rent Bridge House, on the one-way gyratory.

Lambert Smith Hampton property consultancy, which let the building, said it was the largest letting in Guildford town centre for five years.

Aviva Investors, the landlord, is to refurbish the building before the agency is due to move in March 2015.

Lambert Smith Hampton said the agency chose Bridge House for its prime town centre location opposite the mainline railway station.

Earlier this month, Guildford Borough Council was awarded £2.7m of government funding to improve the Guildford gyratory, one of Surrey's worst travel bottlenecks.
