More details from petition creator

Residents of Milford, Hambledon, Enton and Loxhill have concerns about the exponential growth of traffic using the West-East rural route from the A3 at Milford to the A281 at Cranleigh – the unclassified rural route Station Lane - Salt Lane - Markwick Lane. This road has in excess of 3000 vehicles per day using it. It is unsuitable for such volumes - it is a poorly maintained 8 mile rural road, single track in places, with blind corners – it is unsuitable for such vehicle numbers, and is dangerous. It’s designated "Unsuitable for HGVs" but signs are ignored by short-cut HGV traffic to building sites to the East. At peak, 45% of vehicles are commercial.

Surrey CC Highways have ignored the cumulative impact of extra traffic generated on this route by construction traffic from >3000 new homes being built now in the Cranleigh area, and proposed at Dunsfold Park, and Milford Golf Course. If Cranleigh tip closes it will create an extra 15% of traffic using this direct route to Witley tip.

This East-West route will suffer a severe environmental and safety impact. This needs to be addressed urgently.
