Slow Progress on Traffic Calming

On 27th February, Surrey County Council`s Local Committee (comprising councillors from both SCC and RBBC) discussed the CRA`s request for a speed limit reduction in Hazelwood Lane and Doghurst Lane. It appears that Surrey Police has requested that additional speed data be collected prior to implementation of the reduction and the committee narrowly approved a recommendation from officers that SCC fund the additional survey work.

It is hoped that this work will be undertaken quickly and that the additional data will confirm that the average speed in Hazelwood Lane is still 24mph or less, which will then allow the reduction to be implemented using only signs and without the need for any physical calming measures.
