Petition to: construct a safe footpath for pedestrian use from the entrance of Elizabeth Drive Estate to Banstead High Street; to improve road safety for pedestrians.
We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to construct a safe footpath for pedestrian use from the entrance of Elizabeth Drive Estate to Banstead High Street; to improve road safety for pedestrians. More details
More details from petition creator
At present the exiting footpath is more of a dirt track, which is very narrow and not properly maintained, therefore it is uneven and has no kerb protection from vehicles. During rainfall, the drainage along this section of Holly Lane is inadequate; large puddles form on both sides of the road meaning that any pedestrians get water sprayed over them by passing cars and the curvature of the road also gives drivers poor visibility. This is particularly dangerous on a road where the speed limit is 60 mph on the approach to Banstead High Street. The footpath is also non existent at some sections with no kerb present to keep pedestrians safe. As council tax payers and residents we are entitled to a safe walking route, which is suitable for the residents of the Elizabeth Drive Estate including older people and persons with buggies and prams.
