More details from petition creator

The A245 is the main route between much of Weybridge/Woking / Byfleet and Cobham / Oxshott. The route is severed by the A3 and M25 making it difficult to find alternative routes by bicycle without going many miles out of the way to the north or south. The road is extremely unpleasant and stressful to cycle on because it is narrow, has high traffic flows and a 50mph speed limit for much of its length. It is difficult for cars to safely pass cyclists due to the volume of traffic and narrowness of the carriageway, causing vehicles to back up behind any cyclist. Currently there is a continuous footway between Byfleet and the B365 (Seven Hills Road) which has very low pedestrian use. Converting the footway to shared cycling / pedestrian use would involve minimal expense, improve safety and make cycling far more pleasant along a large part of this strategic route.
