Walnut Tree Close

We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to Return Walnut Tree Close to two way traffic and stop the one way system that forces all traffic going to the railway station through the town centre.

The Council is trialling a one way system through Walnut Tree Close. This is causing all traffic coming to the railway station from Bellfields and Stoughton, and the A3 Wooden Bridge direction through the town centre instead. It’s adding considerably to many people’s journeys and causing congestion and inconvenience. The supposed intention is to increase cycling. The Council’s method of evaluation is seriously flawed and biased towards gathering opinions of those living in the Walnut Tree Close area, which largely consists of student flats - and not the working population of Guildford who need to commute via the train station. (And who are trying to use the train as a means of sustainable travel). Please help stop this poorly thought out and punitive system.
