Pendleton Road HGV Restriction

Closed 19 Jun 2022

Opened 9 Dec 2021


Thank you for your interest in our Experimental 7.5t Environmental Weight Restriction in Pendleton Road, Redhill/Reigate. 

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:

Surrey County Council has installed a 7.5t experimental environmental weight restriction on Pendleton Road (the entire length).

This is in response to concerns raised by residents regarding the suitability of heavy commercial vehicles using Pendleton Road, particularly at the bend on the narrow section near St. John’s Church and St. John’s Primary School. Therefore, Surrey County Council has installed an experimental environmental 7.5t weight restriction in Pendleton Road. The 7.5t environmental weight restriction applies to any vehicle over 7.5t (except buses) and means that any such vehicle must not use or travel through Pendleton Road or any other road with this restriction, unless they are trying to gain access to any property within the restriction. Therefore, the following additional roads have had to be included within the 7.5t environmental weight restriction on Pendleton Road. If these roads were not included, then any heavy commercial vehicles that need to access these roads to make deliveries or collect refuse would not legally be able to do so.

King’s Avenue the entire length
Fairlawn Drive the entire length
Ardshiel Drive the entire length
Cotland Acres the entire length
Mount Rise the entire length
Yeats Close the entire length
Bramley Close the entire length
Chaldon Close the entire length
Abinger Drive the entire length
Ifield Close the entire length
Westview Close the entire length
Pendleton Close the entire length

During the design of the 7.5t environmental weight restriction for Pendleton Road, it became clear that the following additional roads off Pendleton Road would also have to be included within any restriction to ensure that these were also not used by heavy commercial vehicles;

Fountain Road the entire length
Church Road the entire length
Sandpit Road the entire length

St. John’s also has to be included within the restriction on Church Road to ensure that any heavy commercial vehicle can legally access St. John’s to carry out deliveries or collect refuse from properties on St. John’s.

Due to the extent of the 7.5t environmental weight restriction, for the reasons set out above, the 7.5t environmental weight restriction is currently experimental, for a maximum period of 18 months. This is so that an assessment can be carried out on the impact that this restriction may have on other roads on the network, prior to any decision being made on whether to make this restriction permanent.

At the Reigate & Banstead Local Committee meeting held on 1 March 2021, the Local Committee agreed to install an environmental weight restriction in Pendleton Road, Redhill. The Council will consider in due course whether the provisions of the Experimental Traffic Order should be reproduced and continued in force indefinitely by means of an Order Under Section 1 of the Act.
