Last chance to have your say about the future of transport in Surrey

Consultation on Surrey's new Transport Plan which includes plans to reduce the 46% of carbon emissions currently generated by transport, is now underway. The consultation closes on Sunday 24 October.

What's included in the transport plan?

The draft transport plans sets out the council's vision for transport in Surrey and the future choices we all need to make towards net zero carbon by 2050 or earlier.

The proposals include increasing walking and cycling routes, providing more charging points and parking for electric vehicles, increased bus services and charging for transport use. It also proposes improving internet connections for home-working residents and redesigning neighbourhoods that enable easier access to local services, lessening the need to travel by car.

Matt Furniss, Cabinet Member for Transport and Infrastructure said, "Our new transport plan sets out our ambitious roadmap for a transport network in Surrey that meets the needs of the future. Crucially this includes proposals to help tackle the climate emergency and become a carbon free county by 2050.

"With such a high proportion of harmful emissions coming from transport and their significant impact on our environment, we all need to act. Residents can play their part by relying less on their cars for some journeys.

"We know this will be a challenge and we do not expect to eliminate car use, but we hope to make other methods of travel more appealing and accessible for certain journeys, whilst also improving the health and wellbeing of our residents. We have recently invested over £6m to improve footpaths and cycleways for residents and over £5m to improve bus services."
