We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to consider ways of improving safety, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists, and of cutting traffic speed along the 30 mph zone of Gatton Park Road that runs from Wray Common to just after Carlton Road. More details
Gatton Park Road is a busy A road. The stretch from Wray Common to just after Carlton Rd is a 30 zone and route to St Bede’s and Wray Common Primary School. Poor signage and road markings do little to inform drivers of the limit, while traffic islands, intended to force drivers to slow, result in them increasing speed, forcing cyclists to the kerb. Drivers risk collisions by turning at speed into Carlton Rd. Recent Police checks showed nearly 6,000 drivers in a week going over 40mph, and up to speeds over 60. We ask SCC to consider: Installing Vehicle Activated Signs in each direction alerting speeding drivers of the speed limit Removing 2 traffic islands located on GPR approaching the mini roundabout Installing a traffic island at the exit of Carlton Rd to force drivers to slow and turn safely into Carlton Rd and give pedestrians an island to cross to in the middle of the road. Introducing cycle lanes to protect cyclists and provide pedestrians space between them and vehicles.
