Redhill road changes 'as town develops'

Planned changes to the road scheme in Redhill will cut congestion as the Surrey town develops and traffic increases, Reigate council has said.

The proposed changes will see several parts of the current one-way system converted to a two-way scheme.

Natalie Bramhall, cabinet regeneration member, said Redhill was rich in development opportunities but faced a number of transport challenges.

Public consultation on the scheme runs until 4 January.

Ms Bramhall said the scheme would make walking, cycling, and the use of public transport quicker and easier, and the two-way traffic system would automatically cut congestion.

"There are a lot of companies that want to come into Redhill," she said.

She added: "What we need to do is make it easier for everybody to get through and get around."
