Surrey County Council asks residents for views on road safety improvements

Surrey County Council has started a public consultation on the future direction of road safety in the county.

Between 20 and 30 people die on Surrey’s roads every year, with many more injured, according to the council.

The local authority’s Vision Zero strategy aims to reduce fatal and serious injuries by 50% by 2035, with a target of zero by 2050.

The council has launched a public consultation into the strategy, which will run until 24 March.

Councillor Matt Furniss, cabinet member for highways, transport and economic growth, said it was essential to set “ambitious targets” due to the impact road collisions have on victims, their families and the wider community.

“Between 20 and 30 people still tragically die on Surrey’s roads every year and many more are injured,” said Mr Furniss.

“I would like to encourage all residents to have their say on our important proposals to help us drive down death and injuries in Surrey now and for our future generations.”
