Have your say on road safety in Surrey
In recent years, the annual number of road casualties killed or seriously injured on Surrey’s roads has not reduced. Surrey also has some of the highest numbers of pedestrian and cycling road casualties of any local authority in Great Britain.
The Surrey RoadSafe Partnership, which consists of Surrey County Council, Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, Surrey Police, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey, and National Highways have collaborated to develop a new “Vision Zero” Road Safety Strategy; aiming for zero road deaths and serious injuries by 2050.
The Surrey RoadSafe Partnership wants to provide a more flexible approach to implementing 20 mph speed limits that have the support of local people. The draft strategy does not advocate a blanket approach and recognises that some main roads outside the centre of towns could remain at 30 mph.
You are now being asked what do you think about the proposals that have been drafted.
Please make sure you have your say before the 24th March 2024 midnight deadline.
