Transport

Our priorities for the transport sector, aimed at reducing emissions whilst providing a better and more comprehensive transport system, is centred on a three-pronged approach of:

  • Reducing journeys
  • Shifting to an increase use of public and active transport modes; and
  • Developing zero emission vehicle options.

Combined, these priorities will bring about significant improvements in our air quality and the health of our residents. The actions to deliver this will include undertaking significant improvement and investment in our public transport infrastructure.

We can all do our bit to contribute to this shift in our transport system, currently just 10.8% of us walk or cycle to work, with just 3.0% cycling for transport purposes at least three times a week.

What changes would you like to see in Surrey’s transport system?

Cycling infrastructure needs to be built into standard road developments. Where existing roads have no cycle lanes, these need to be added. Example Esher Centre: The most cycle unfriendly and car centric road.

Given the fact that the Government has given the go ahead for electric cars to have an EV number plate with a green flash on it. It makes sense to allow electric cars to use bus lanes therefore reducing the amount of traffic in the main lanes. London uses this system and it works rather well.

I’d also like to see charging hubs at park and ride places which means electric car users could charge up while doing their shopping etc using an electric bus to get into the city.

I would like to see an Holland approach to cycling so that cyclists are separated by a physical barrier rather than just a bit of paint in the gutter.
Answer here
I drive a zero emissions car which is fully electric.

I would like to see investment in active transport infrastructure. This could include but is not limited to resurfacing sides of roads and pavements, creating bike lanes that people feel safe enough to use, widening pavements and providing more crossings that prioritise pedestrians.

Currently there is a big push for people to walk and cycle to help with congestion, corona virus concerns, reducing emissions and improving people’s health. However, many people do not feel safe enough to use our current roads and footpaths to the extent that they would like. This is the perfect time for Surrey County Council to invest in the future to make Surrey a nicer and healthier place to live in as well as helping meet the councils goals of carbon neutrality by 2050.

There are plenty of good examples of active transport infrastructure leading to increased levels of walking and cycling which in turn leads to more support for this infrastructure.

Please find a way to integrate buses like they do in London. Where bus routes overlap we should not be limited to the bus company we bought the first part of the ticket on. Please ensure contactless payment is available, with an option for payment where people’s movement can’t be tracked eg cash or Oyster like cards, that work even if they aren’t registered.

More integration

Small car, walk most places under 1 mile away.
