Various Roads in Byfleet - 20mph Speed Limit Proposals

Closes 23 May 2024

Opened 25 Apr 2024


Thank you for your interest in our 20mph speed limit proposals for various roads in Byfleet.

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:
Concerns have been raised by residents of Chertsey Road, Byfleet and supported by the County Councillor of The Byfleets Electoral Division about the volume of traffic that is using the road to travel between A245 Parvis Road and A318 Oyster Lane (and reverse) to avoid queues on A318 Barnes Wallis Drive and Oyster Lane.

Consultation was undertaken on various schemes to either close Chertsey Road and Oyster Lane to through traffic, or to make the through routes less appealing. The majority of respondents to the consultation indicated a preference to do nothing and leave the current road layout as it is. However, a number of respondents asked for a 20mph speed limit. This had always been considered and the results of speed surveys suggest that a reduction in the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph would be appropriate and in accordance with Surrey County Council’s Speed Limit Policy.

There is a general move towards reducing speed limits where possible, particularly if this helps to promote Safer Routes to Schools and encourages more pupils and parents to walk or cycle to school rather than use private motor vehicles.

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:
