    The purpose of this report is to present the outcomes of the non-statutory public engagement process on the proposed active travel corridor scheme from New Inn Lane to York Road along the A3100 London Road, Guildford, in order to inform a decision on whether or not to proceed with the construction of all or part of the proposed scheme.

    The Leader of the Council:


    1.      Noted the efforts that have gone into extending the engagement with the local community and stakeholders for the London Road active travel corridor in Guildford and acknowledge the feedback provided on the scheme proposals.

    2.      Proceeded with the construction of Section 2 – Boxgrove Roundabout based on the strength of support from the local community, with the detailed design incorporating comments from the community engagement to deliver a scheme that prioritises pedestrians and cyclists.

    3.      Deferred a decision on Section 1 subject to further design review informed by comments received through the engagement to ensure that the scheme considers the needs of all road users, with further consideration to be given by the Leader at a future date.

    4.      In the interim, committed to progressing with the delivery of a controlled crossing near Winterhill Way to assist with safer routes to school, following strong representation from local stakeholders.  

    5.      Did not proceed with Section 3 - Boxgrove Roundabout to York Road, as there were legitimate concerns raised about the design of this section and there is an existing alternative route through Stoke Park, but instead to progress with the delivery of a more targeted improvement in the form of a zebra crossing on the junction of Nightingale Road and London Road
