A summary of some proposed bicycle-related travel measures that are being considered by Surrey County Highways and may be coming to Reigate & Banstead shortly.
One of the effects of the current crisis has been an increase in Cycling. With this in mind Surrey County Highways are considering a number of changes. Our Liberal Democrat Councillor - Steve Kulka is working with the rest of the council and community groups to develop these changes.
As part of this first phase pilot:
Reigate - 20mph speed limit for Church Street, Bancroft Rd, Bell Street and High Street, temp cycle lane High Street. Waymarking of off-road routes through Priory Park plus cycle parking and waymarking routes to station from the town centre.
Redhill - let cycles use pedestrian area, additional cycle parking outside McDonald's.
Horley - provide cycle parking outside Post Office, improve pedestrian crossing facilities outside Lidl.
Banstead - wayfinding signs.
A25 Reigate Road, Reigate - install parking restrictions on the existing westbound cycle lane.
Draft visualisation of the proposed cycle facility in Reigate High Street, based on Google Streetview is shown here.
These are just some of the ideas that have been submitted and the Highways team hope to do more in the later phase.
If you have further ideas please do email [email protected] and put “Active Travel” in the heading. These ideas will be considered as part of the next phase of works.
