Deepdene Avenue Dorking 40mph Speed Limit

Closed 14 Jan 2021

Opened 10 Dec 2020


Thank you for your interest in our 40mph Speed Limit proposal in Deepdene Avenue, Dorking. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

It is proposed to reduce the existing speed limit of 50mph to a 40mph speed limit on the A24 Deepdene Avenue. From the existing terminal speed limit signs (40mph/50mph), 30m south of the junction with X14135 Deepdene Drive for a distance of 2,519m to the A24 Horsham Road/A2003 Flint Hill/C251 Spook Hill roundabout junction.

A petition was presented to the Mole Valley Local Committee on 22nd January 2020, by local residents, requesting a reduction of the speed limit on the A24 Deepdene Avenue from the Cockerel roundabout until past the old Kuoni site, from the current 50mph to a safer slower speed limit reflecting the residential area.  

Speed limit assessments were carried out on the A24 Deepdene Avenue, within the existing section of the A24 Deepdene Avenue which has a 50mph speed limit. This follows the processes set out in Surrey County Council’s Policy “Setting Local Speed Limits”. The results of the speed limit assessments showed that the mean average speeds within the 50mph section of the A24 Deepdene Avenue, comply with Surrey County Council’s Policy “Setting Local Speed Limits” for a 40mph speed limit.

Therefore the Mole Valley Local Committee agreed at their meeting on 17th June 2020, that based upon the evidence provided by the results of the speed limit assessments, the speed limit be reduced along the following section of the A24 Deepdene Avenue;

Between the existing 40mph speed limit just to the south of the junction with Deepdene Drive and the North Holmwood roundabout junction.
