You may be aware that recently there was unfortunately a fatal road accident on the Old Woking Road on the hill by Broomcroft Drive. This like a number of other serious accidents occurred late at night. Local residents did attend immediately, but one can only imagine what they witnessed.
Looking at the crash data on CrashMap, https://www.crashmap.co.uk/ it is clear that there are many accidents on the Old Woking Road since 2000, including another fatality in 2007.
Local residents have contacted me to find a solution to significantly reduce the number of accidents.
Various suggestions have been made but Surrey County Council as the highway authority will need to implement such as :-
- 30 mph zone – there are many turnings on parts of the road
- Camber of the road near Broomcroft Drive needs improvement
- The bend needs to be amended so that it is gentler after such a long straight stretch.
- Average speed camera
- Speed Camera
Is there anyone out there who is a traffic expert who could help put together a question to the Woking Joint Committee? Any help would be much appreciated.
