Petition update 2 from the council, 07 May 2020

Dear Petitioner

Unfortunately as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak it was not possible to hold the meeting of the Elmbridge Local Committee at which the petition was to be considered. However in line with the county Council's agreed remote meeting protocol some decisions were made by officers in consultation with members of the Committee under delegated powers. The decisions in relation to the petition can be viewed here https://mycouncil.surreycc.gov.uk/documents/g6991/Decisions%20Tuesday%2017-Mar-2020%2016.00%20Elmbridge%20Local%20Committee.pdf?T=2

More details from petition creator

Hersham Road is an extremely busy road between Walton and Hersham. The speed limit of 30mph is often exceeded. There is no designated place to cross the road between Station Avenue/Rydens Road and Walton itself, a distance of 0.7 miles. Children & their parents coming to & from Westward School, and patients of the Forthhouse Surgery are affected by this lack of traffic control on a daily basis. Staff members in both establishments are also affected. Traffic (human & vehicular) going through the area will only increase once the new development at Stompond Lane has been completed.

We urge Surrey County Council to introduce some way of slowing traffic and facilitating crossing the road. An initial reduction to a 20mph zone would make a distinct difference. If this were coupled with a pedestrian crossing outside the school and surgery this would benefit all those accessing both facilities. We would ask Surrey to consider the potential vulnerability of both sets of people attending these facilities.
