Petition to: Make Sutton Gardens in Merstham a one way road for the safety of school children and the protection of residents' vehicles

This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to Make Sutton Gardens in Merstham a one way road for the safety of school children and the protection of residents' vehicles. More details

More details from petition creator

There are two schools on Taynton Drive, and currently a third sharing a site after flooding. Parents continue to drop their children at the gate despite school requests to stop. Sutton Gardens is a narrow road on a bend that drivers cut through to get from Weldon Way to these schools. It has a wide kerb on the inside of the bend, and drivers in passenger cars, taxis and vans drive up the kerb when finding a vehicle travelling the opposite way. This has led to residents witnessing a number of near misses since September 2020 including: A child on a bike having a near miss on a kerb; a Sainsburys driver forcing a mother and child onto a resident's driveway; a lady on a mobility scooter faced with a car coming head on towards her. There has also been several collisions with residents cars. Residents have raised their fears of a serious injury and further damage to property to local Councillors, the County Council, at the new school consultation and with the Police, and have now been advised to start a petition. We believe Sutton Gardens should become a one way street, or become a cul de sac with an emergency services barrier.
