SPEED LIMIT CHANGES ON HOLLY LANE (BANSTEAD), PARK LANE, CLAYHALL LANE AND WHITEHALL LANE (REIGATE) pdf icon PDF 654 KB

    • Share this item

    Following an investigation into a pattern of road collisions on Holly Lane (Banstead), it was noted that the existing 60mph national speed limit for this road was inappropriate and an anomaly in comparison to the speed limit on adjoining roads. Using the assessment process described in Surrey County Council’s “Setting Local Speed Limits” policy, it is proposed that the existing 60mph national speed limit is reduced to 40mph.

     

    As part of a separate rural speed limits review project, it was noted that the existing 60mph national speed limits on Park Lane, Clayhall Lane and Whitehall Lane (Reigate) were also inappropriate and an anomaly in comparison to the speed limits on adjoining and nearby roads. It is proposed that the existing 60mph national speed limit is reduced to 30mph on Park Lane, and Clayhall Lane, and 20mph on Whitehall Lane in accordance with Surrey County Council’s “Setting Local Speed Limits” policy.

    Decision:

    The Local Committee (Reigate & Banstead) agreed, based on the evidence:

     

    i)              That the speed limit be reduced from 60mph to 40mphon Holly Lane (Banstead), between the existing 30mph speed limit adjacent to the junction with Holly Lane West, and the existing 30 mph speed limit adjacent to the entrance to the Holly Lane car park for Banstead Woods.

    ii)             That the speed limit be reduced from 60mph to 30mph on Park Lane (Reigate), between the existing 30 mph speed limit approximately 60m to the north of the junction with Wesley Close at the northern end, and the junction with Park Lane East at the southern end.

    iii)           That the speed limit be reduced from 60mph to 30 mph on Clayhall Lane between the existing 30 mph on Park Lane East at the northern end and the junction with Slipshatch Road at the southern end.

    iv)           That the existing speed limit be reduced from 60mph to 20mph on Whitehall Lane between the junction with Sandcross Lane at the northern end and the junction with Slipshatch Road at the southern end.

    v)            To Authorise the advertisement of a notice in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to implement the proposed speed limit changes, revoke any existing traffic orders necessary to implement the change, and, subject to no objections being upheld, that the order be made;

    vi)           To Authorise delegation of authority to the Area Highway Manager in consultation with the Chairman, Vice-Chairman of the Local Committee and the relevant local divisional member to resolve any objections received in connection with the proposal.

    vii)          To Note that if the reductions in speed limit have not been successful, then further engineering measures or a return to the original higher speed limit may be necessary.

    Reasons for decision:

    Reducing the speed limit on these roads will help to manage vehicle speeds to a level more appropriate to the use of road and will reduce the risk and severity of collisions. Lower speeds can also reduce air and noise pollution, and make it easier and more pleasant to walk, cycle and ride horses.
