Thank you for coming to our online survey to tell us your thoughts on the Road Safety Proposals for St Lawrence Primary School, East Molesey

Why your views matter

We would like your views on options to make the roads near St Lawrence Junior School safer and easier for all road users, especially for children walking, scooting and cycling to school. This follows on from a petition in November 2020 which can be viewed here. As part of a first phase, we have already implemented a narrowing to the junction between Wolsey Road and Church Road to make it easier to cross the road and slow motor vehicles down at that location.

We would now like your views on the second phase to manage motor traffic near the school and to make it easier and safer to cross Church Road nearer the junction with Vine Road too. 

Option 1: 20mph speed limit on Church Road and surrounding roads (this can be implemented in addition to one of the following options)

Option 2: Trial point closure; or

Option 3: “School Street” pedestrian zone at school journey times on Church Road; or

Option 4: A raised zebra crossing: or

Option 5: Do nothing.

A full description of each of the options with their advantages and disadvantages can be viewed in the following document.
