153482Photo #153482There is no crossing between bus stops and no footpath on the West side to the garden centre and the residential area in Pleasure Pit Road which it serves, This could be improved by making a verge pathway to the garden centre from the northbound bus stop and a crossing positioned by the southbound bus stop.Track:

150601Photo #150601Average speed cameras needed along the London Road, the whole road should be changed to 30 miles an hour, and they should add go slow signs which show what speed you’re going, they should also add a zebra or pelican crossing, as nobody stops when you’re in the middle of central reservation, and if you have a pram and a dog or more than one child with you is extremely dangerous to be in the central island trying to cross to the other side, I’ve nearly been hit on a number of occasions where cars are going over 30 miles an hour and not slowing downTemporary closure:

146342Photo #146342There is a path from Wheelers Lane in Stanford Ward which goes behind Rosebery school., the main girls school. It passes over the Railway line and is the most direct route from Stanford Ward and avoids going up and down West Hill and then uphill up Dorking Road, so is not only a direct route but one that avoids the hill climbs. The back gate is no longer opened due to concerns over users being waylayed by paedophiles and other undesirables so the path is little used further reducing its safe use. There have been issues of teenagers meeting and dropping things off the bridge at night in the past, as a result the bridge is covered.
Create cycle route and install lighting and cameras. Encourage school to open gate during school arrival and departure times. (Even if it remains closed it is still a more level route to school.)

146334Photo #146334Cycles share arterial roadway with cars and buses. They go slowly uphill and cars cannot pass them safely.
Make a segregated cycle lane on the uphill side of the road and realign the road to use the green verge on the other side.
If this was a 20 mph road would cars be less inclined to overtake?

146333Photo #146333Road is narrow, no room for cars to pass slow moving cyclists safely on the brow of the hill. The green verge narrows on the approach to this stretch making it not possible to continue a segregated cycle path on the uphill side of the road.
Move footpath over onto the green allowing road to be moved over and a segregated cycle track to be installed on the uphill side.

146322Photo #146322The area under the bridge is narrow and is shared by a fair amount of cycle traffic going to the town and station. The footpath is separate, in front of a row of cottages and in front of the shops. It is narrow under the railway bridge. Here people cannot pass keeping their distance. I even saw a man in a manual wheelchair had come down the road to the lights avoiding this path the other day. It would be a sqeeze to pass another person on the footpath under the bridge never mind keeping his distance.

Install a priority filter on the footpath under the bridge, maybe towards town in the morning and away from it in the evening rush hours, either way will do outside rush hour to the station and Rosebank to go to Rosebery school.

146318Photo #146318Currently bicycles share paths with pedestrians throughout the park. The path through the park between Dorking Road and Ashley Road can be used to avoid Ashley Avenue and Magdans Walk used to exit town to pick up with the on-road cycle way in Woodcote Green Road, thus avoiding both the main Roads of Ashley Road and Dorking Road.
Add new cycle paths segregated from the footpaths around the perimeter, retaining the existing large green areas. Note. Consideration could be making these paths one-way cycle paths anti-clockwise round the perimeter, with two ways in the part between Sweetbriar Lane and Woodcote Road and a two-way from Ladbroke Road to Magdans Walk and the junctions to the path off to Worple Road.

146317Photo #146317There is a cycle way down Ashley Road on both side of this main B290 thoroughfare. It is not wide or segregated.

If the pleasant path inside the park were widened / dualed then removal of the footway along the park side of Ashley Road would mean greater width available for cycling.

146316Photo #146316One relatively safe way to get from town centre to out of town by bicycle to avoid the two main roads is to go down The Parade and along Laburnum Road to Heathcote Road, then along Worple Road or up Downside. The current problem is that The Parade is currently no cycling and there is no dropped curb to get onto Laburnum Road.
Similarly to avoid going through the town centre or up Church from shopping in Upper High Street, the path across in front of the clinic can be taken but the exit onto the parade is blind at that point.
Ideally cycling should be permitted along The pedestrianised part of the parade.
Alternatively, cycling permitted from the road part of The Parade to Laburnum Road and the kerb dropped at the end of Laburnum Road.
The cycle path from Dullshot Green to be altered to come out by the end of Laburnum Road.

146315Photo #146315Cyclists cannot currently turn right to go to the station but have to go all the way round the dangerous one way system. Observation during cycle counts have shown cyclists doing illegal right turns or getting off and walking across.
See also previous suggestions for overcoming dangerous one-way system and segregated cycle lanes in High Street. There is also plenty of room for alterations here. Potential for bus stops and sheltered cycle stands.

146312Photo #146312It is difficult for a cyclist to get across to turn right here and if not at the front of the row of cars to safely pass Upper High Street before its lights change, but if they go first, then they often get cut up by cars passing in front of them turning left up Upper High Street.
Have a separate space for cyclists to turn across and consider timing on the lights.

Ashley Road and Ashley Avenue made two-way and one of the three lanes in South street to provide a segregated cycle lane. Additional covered cycle parking to be provided, Current bus park in Ashley Avenue to become a standard bus stop to replace bus stops in the High Street.

145423Photo #145423There is an exit from Derby Arms Road and a horse crossing on Downs Road. These are close on the roundabout where people swing round at speed. 40mph is permitted. When driving out of Derby Arms Road it is hard to see cars coming off the roundabout. Driving up Downs Road at 40mph, there is no path on that side of the road so visibility to the left is reduced so it is not easy to see or expect the lights. Horses behaviour is not always predictable.
For safety, the speed at this point should be 20mph. Since the Cemetery is being extended, there will be a new gate, there is also the opportunity to move the start of the 30mph off the downs and have no 40mph stretch.

This includes occasional horseboxes which can turn in the stable yard or the Durdans Stables Entrance

It is difficult to cross this road where the bridleway crosses the road because of continuous traffic. (The golfers have to do it too) It is also difficult to drive out of the viewpoint car park safely.
