Why are these works proposed?
Local Councillors have been campaigning for a lower speed limit, Ash Parish News spoke with Cllr Nigel Manning who said “These works are in need along this stretch of road because of a number of new housing developments which have recently been granted planning permission. These will inevitably result in more traffic, including cyclists and pedestrians. It is now necessary to reduce the maximum speed limit from 40 to 30 MPH to improve safety for all users of this stretch of road”.
The proposed reduction in the maximum speed limit follows Surrey County Council’s Policy for “Setting Local Speed Limits”. Cllr Nigel Manning also confirmed that the Police have been consulted, and they are in support of the proposed reduction in the maximum speed limit.
