The highway improvements are part of a challenging and complex puzzle made up of many different inter-connected projects.

In June 2019 Mole Valley District Council’s Cabinet agreed to move forward with the Leatherhead Highway Improvement Package Phase 2: Detailed Feasibility Study. The study will consist of further surveys and analysis of the options identified in Phase 1 looking at pedestrian and cycling connections, public realm and highway safety:

D – Close Bull Hill from Kingston Road to Leret Way junction.

E – Create new one-way southbound link road from Randalls Road to Station Road.

F – Station Road and Leret Way more likely to be used by local traffic. Introduce an improved sustainable route.

G – Assess the impact of introducing two-way traffic on the gyratory.

NEXT STEPS

  • Undertake Phase 2: Detailed Feasibility Study.¬†
  • Surrey County Council will work with external partners to investigate potential solutions and funding opportunities to improve the Strategic (Jct 9 M25) and Major Road Network (A24/A243)
