20mph Speed Limit Proposals- Walton Street and Mere Road, Walton on the Hill

Closed 3 Jan 2024

Opened 7 Dec 2023


Thank you for your interest in our 20mph speed limit proposals on Walton Street and Mere Road. 

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:

During the current financial year there has been a request by the County Councillor for the reduction of the existing 30mph speed limit to 20mph on a section of Walton Street and Mere Road in the vicinity of the Walton on the Hill Primary School.

Speed limits can help to reduce accidents and improve safety for all road users. It has been shown that the slower a vehicle is travelling, then the less likelihood there is of a serious or fatal injury occurring. It is expected that the proposed speed limit reduction to a 20mph speed limit will contribute to improving road safety and improving the environment in the vicinity, particularly near the school.

Speed surveys were conducted and the data shows that the proposed 20mph speed limit will comply with the current Surrey County Council speed limit policy. The police and the County Councillor have been informally consulted and they support the proposal

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:
