PETITION RESPONSE ON WHITE ROSE LANE SPEED LIMIT pdf icon PDF 130 KB

    At its meeting on 28 June 2017, the Woking Joint Committee received a petition asking for a 20mph speed limit and an HGV restriction (7.5T weight limit) to be introduced on what is perceived to be the most dangerous section of White Rose Lane, this being at the eastern end of road where there is no footway and few frontagers. The petition, which contained 63 signatures, also asked for a commitment to complete a footway along the entire route as soon as practicable.

     

    It was resolved that a further report be brought to the Joint Committee on how a 20mph zone could be achieved within the current SCC Speed Policy, together with associated costs of any scheme.

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    Woking Joint Committee agreed that:

     

    i)     Neither a 20mph limit or zone be introduced in White Rose Lane;

     

    ii)    The traffic calmed length of White Rose Lane is resurfaced, including the reconstruction of the speed cushions, when funds are available.

     

    iii)   A follow up report be brought back to the Joint Committee in 12 months following the introduction of the revised Speed Limit Policy. This report should be a holistic consideration of White Rose Lane, East Hill, Park Road and Maybury Hill.

     

    Reason for recommendation:

     

    The length of road that already has traffic calming features would benefit from being resurfaced and the existing speed cushions rebuilt as soon as funds allow.

A322 CONSULTATION pdf icon PDF 314 KB

    The report is provided following previous reports to the Woking Joint Committee and a public consultation undertaken in July 2017 to consider potential improvements along the A322 and other local areas in Knaphill and Brookwood.

                                     

    The focus of the consultation included seven conceptual junction improvements and the report is able to feedback on support for the different proposals.

     

    Members are asked to consider the next steps for any of the proposals consulted upon. Next steps would include detailed design and related traffic studies as a minimum to ensure any solutions can be optimised in terms of traffic movements, pedestrian and cycle access.

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    Woking Joint Committee supported the following proposals:

     

    i)    To proceed with further works on the Broadway / Redding Way junction including removal of the restriction and associated works to the car park.

     

    ii)   To proceed with works on the Brookwood Crossroads with timings to align with adjacent development.

     

    iii)  To proceed with the investigation of a further lane at the Bagshot Road / Redding Way junction.

     

    Reason for recommendation:

     

    The public consultation supported these proposals, this decision will support the progress of the schemes..
