Comment on 20mph speed limit and traffic calming proposals

A public consultation on proposals to reduce speed limits to 20mph in Farnham town centre, Weydon Lane and Upper Hale Road is now open.

The proposals are based on speed surveys which were commissioned by the Farnham Infrastructure Programme to understand the issues caused by speeding vehicles and consider how they might be addressed.

The surveys said that road signage and markings would be enough in most locations to encourage drivers to stick to 20mph speed limits, but there are two locations where further measures are proposed.

On Castle Street, its proposed to create small gateway features in the road to locate new 20mph signs alongside attractive flower planting. They will also narrow the road and help to calm the traffic as it enters and exits the town centre. Residents can give feedback on this in the 20mph consultation.

There is a separate consultation for the installation of traffic calming measures in Upper Hale Road to support the 20mph limit. It is proposed to put speed cushions near the Alma Lane, Queens Road and Wellesley Garden junctions.
