Surrey Highways is proposing to install a new puffin crossing outside Limpsfield Infants School in association with changes to the Eastbound carriageway and junction with Kent Hatch Road.
Details are below. Residents and other interested parties have until February 3rd to comment via the Surrey Highways website or other contact provided below.
This work is with the intention of providing safer crossing for school children and parents/carers, as well as a safer junction with the Kent Hatch Road and consequential slowing down of traffic in this section of the A25.
