East Hill, Woking - Traffic Calming Measures

Closed 10 Dec 2020

Opened 12 Nov 2020

Results updated 5 Mar 2021

East Hill proposed traffic calming

As a result of the statutory consultation for the proposed traffic calming measures along East Hill, it has been decided not to proceed with this scheme.

Twice as many objections to the proposals were received than comments of support and in view of this, physical traffic calming measures will not be introduced.  Some improvements will be made to the signs and road markings at the start of the 30mph limit at the junction with Old Woking Road and we will be introducing two Vehicle Activated Signs to remind drivers of the speed limit.


Thank you for your interest in our traffic calming measures proposals in East Hill, Woking. 

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:

Over the course of a number of years, concerns have been expressed about vehicle speeds and road safety in East Hill and Maybury Hill, Woking. Both roads provide direct links from the B382 Old Woking Road to Maybury and the eastern side of Woking, including the Lion Retail Park and Sheerwater. Both roads are included in Surrey County Council’s Speed Management Plan for Woking.

As a result of questionnaires that were received following a consultation exercise, including a public exhibition, several years ago, there was support from residents of both roads for physical traffic calming measures as opposed to enhanced road markings and Vehicle Activated Signs.

The Woking Joint Committee has allocated funding for the 2020/21 financial year for these schemes to be fully designed and implemented.

These proposals are intended to address those concerns and to reduce the number and severity of personal injury collisions along both roads.

East Hill – the detailed design has highlighted that the width of the road would only permit the narrowest speed cushions to be used and these are likely to have minimal effect on vehicle speeds, which is why this scheme now consists of 3 full width speed tables with speed cushions in between them.
