Surrey County Council has agreed to a request from County Councillor Will Forster to lower the speed limit on Egley Road outside the Hoe Valley School.

The A320 between Mayford and Woking currently has a 40 mph speed limit. However, following the opening of the new school, both the County Council and Police have agreed to lower the limit to 30 mph between the Mayford and Turnoak roundabouts.

An electronic Vehicle Activated Sign to warm drivers that the road's speed limit is now 30 mph will be installed just north of the Hoe Valley School. The speed limit on the nearby B380 Guildford Road, between the A320 and Westfield Road, will also be lowered.

Lib Dem County Councillor for Woking South, Will Forster, said:

"I am delighted the speed limit of two busy roads in Mayford, especially outside the Hoe Valley School, will soon be lowered. With the relatively new school now fully open, 40 mph is not appropriate or safe along these roads anymore."
