Guildford Joint Committee (GJC) has agreed to provide a 20mph speed limit on specified roads between Woodbridge Road and Stoke Road as part of the Guildford College Link+. The aim is to support easier and safer cycling, scooting and walking between Guildford College and Guildford Rail station by providing a 20mph limit on these roads and throughout the adjoining residential roads to ensure consistency of speed limit and easier and safer walking throughout the residential area. Paragraph 3.4 of the report to the GJC stated "A reduction in speed limit to 20 mph on other nearby routes such as Recreation Road, Stocton Road and Joseph’s Road could also be considered in order to assist more walking and cycling to and from the College and leisure centre destinations. This is out of scope for this scheme and will depend on further feasibility work, speed surveys and funding being available, but should be considered as a future phase." We are asking the GJC to consider installing 20mph on Recreation, Stocton and Joseph's roads and the roads off them and nearby suitable roads to support walking and cycling on these residential roads and lower speeds around the playground and Rec.
