A217 toucan crossing

A217 toucan crossing works

These works began on Monday 23 October and will take approximately four months to complete. The works are progressing well and are on schedule, works will stop over the Christmas period for holiday traffic.

Information for residents and businesses

During these works there will be lane closures on the north and southbound carriageways of the A217, close to the junction with Burgh Wood. Lane closures will be in place at all times.

In addition, these works will require the closure of the gap in the central reservation opposite Burgh Wood. This will prevent residents turning out of Burgh Wood to the A217 and vice-versa. This section of the works will take place at night working under road closures of the A217. This will be for approximately 5 nights over the duration of the project.

Background information

We are providing a toucan crossing on the A217 Brighton Road in Banstead for pedestrians and cyclists. The purpose of the scheme is to provide a safer means of crossing a busy dual carriageway which separates the residential areas of Banstead and Nork from the centre of Banstead. The scheme is in response to a petition to provide a safe crossing of the A217 Brighton Road near Burgh Wood.

The crossing will be on the A217 Brighton Road just to the north of the junction with Burgh Wood and linking with the footpath to The Horseshoe.

Local residents have been in touch with Councillor Colin Kemp, Cabinet Member for Highways, and he is also helping us to find a way forward, as we recognise this project is important to the community.
