Egham Hythe - Traffic Calming Proposals

Closed 10 May 2024

Opened 12 Apr 2024


Thank you for your interest in our traffic calming proposals in Egham Hythe.

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:

St Paul’s Road, Wapshott Road, Bowes Road and Cornwall Way are local residential estate roads that all currently have a 30mph speed limit. The roads provide a through route between the busy A320 Chertsey Lane and the B3376 Thorpe Road.

Residents have expressed concerns that drivers regularly use the roads as a “rat-run” to avoid queues at the Thorpe Road railway level crossing and the Thorpe Road/Chertsey Lane/The Causeway/Staines Bridge roundabout. Residents have also raised concerns about vehicle speeds and road safety.

A series of traffic surveys were undertaken to investigate the concerns raised and having considered the results of the consultation, it has been decided to proceed with the introduction of traffic calming measures and a 20mph speed limit. These proposals will help improve road safety, reduce both vehicle speeds and volumes, and reduce the impact of traffic on residents’ quality of life

If you would like to object, support, or comment on the proposal, please use the Online Survey linked at the bottom of the page, or alternatively, write to:
