Outwood Lane Traffic

Over the last 3 years, our Speedwatch teams have identified a persistent level of speeding along Outwood Lane. Surrey Police has confirmed that our results for Outwood Lane are the second worst in Surrey, and about 18 months ago installed traffic monitors which confirmed our results. Since then Surrey Police have not carried out any enforcement procedures.

The CRA is very disappointed with the police response and has written to the Chief Superintendent for North Surrey requesting regular enforcement action. Our letter can be read here.

Subsequent to our letter, on Wednesday, March 1, an elderly cyclist has died after being involved in a collision with a van in Outwood   Lane. The 75-year-old man, described by police as local, was riding along the lane at about 12 am when the collision happened. Emergency services, including the air ambulance attended, but sadly the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
