Petition update from the council, 01 July 2015

The Committee would like to thank Mrs Lynch for presenting the petition on behalf of the local residents in Pirbright.

Several meetings have already taken place with officers from Surrey County Council (SCC) road safety team, design team, highways asset team, local team and the police, a borough councillor, parish councillors and local residents.

A request for a pedestrian crossing has been placed on the Guildford running list to be discussed further in the autumn Task Group meeting and for potential inclusion in the 2016/17 traffic improvement schemes subject to prioritisation and funding approval by the Guildford Local Committee.

In 2014 the road safety team reviewed the speed limit in Gole Road and other roads in the vicinity and as a result new lower speed limits were introduced just over a year ago.

SCC officers have developed proposals to improve the existing signs & road markings, lay new rumble strips and install new bollards in the vicinity of the bend by Cowshot Bridge.These measures include an advisory 30mph sign approaching the bridge from the westerly direction. An order has been placed for the work which should be completed by the autumn.

Officers will investigate the feasibility of a new section of footway in Gole Road (over a length of approximately 270m) for potential inclusion in the running list of requested schemes.

More details from petition creator

In January, a 5 year old pedestrian was seriously injured in a road traffic accident at Cowshott Bridge, Gole Road, Pirbright. In March there were 4 car accidents in 23 days at the same place. The last accident resulting in the driver being seriously injured. About 100 children who attend Pirbright Primary School and their families need to cross Gole Road to get to school. Other pedestrians, dog walkers, commuters, cyclists and workers also need to cross Gole Road. There is no safe place to cross Gole Road. There is a dangerous bend that drivers frequently mis-manage and mount the verge where pedestrians wait to cross the road. We ask that a safe pedestrian crossing is created at Cowshott Bridge to protect pedestrians. We ask that the 40mph speed limit at Cowshott Bridge be reduced to 30mph. We ask that at the junction with Dawney Hill that pedestrians have a safe crossing and walk under the railway. We ask Surrey County Council to act expediently without the 18 month delay we have been advised to expect, to prevent risking further harm coming to pedestrians and drivers.
