A24 between Dorking and Leatherhead reduced to 50mph
THE speed of a dual carriageway road between Dorking and Leatherhead has been reduced from 70mph to 50mph.
The change has been made on the stretch between the Denbies roundabout and Swanworth Lane after years of campaigning by local residents.
Speaking after Surrey County Council's local committee meeting on Wednesday, councillor Hazel Watson (Lib Dem, Dorking Hills) said: "I am very pleased that it has finally been reduced. It was a fantastic campaign by the local community who put together a petition and presented it to the local committee."I do feel that the reduced speed limit was long overdue, there had been too many deaths and serious injures on that stretch of road and I hope that the accident rate will now improve and it will be safer."
