Sandy Lane (Cheam) Area - Proposed 20mph speed limit

Closed 24 Mar 2024

Opened 27 Feb 2024


Sutton Council is committed to making roads safer in the borough and giving people more choice in how they travel. We want to improve safety on the roads to reduce the number and severity of accidents, to make it easier for people to walk or cycle and to improve air quality.

People have previously told us about traffic issues in the Sandy Lane area and we have used this feedback to develop proposals to address these issues.

We are inviting you to give feedback on a proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit in the Sandy Lane area of Cheam shown on the plan below. 

Proposed 20mph plan

The proposal 

The proposal is to reduce the speed to 20mph on Arundel Road, Burdon Lane, Champneys Close, Chesham Close, Cheyham Way, Devon Road, Downs Side, Glebe Road, Godolphin Close, High View, Manor Road, Meadowside Road, Northey Avenue between borough boundary and Belmont Rise, Old Barn Close, Onslow Avenue, Peaches Close, Sandy Lane, Scarborough Close, Shirley Avenue, South Drive, Station Approach, Station Way, The Avenue, The Crescent between Belmont Rise and Burdon Lane, The Dene, The Glade, The Lawns, Upper Mulgrave Road between Station Road and Belmont Rise, Warren Avenue, Wray Road, West Drive between borough boundary and Sandy Lane and Wilbury Avenue

The aim of the 20mph proposal is to improve air quality and reduce the risk and severity of accidents. This would provide a safer environment for all road users and would make it easier for people to walk and cycle in the area if they wish to.
