This is SCC doing what it wants as it is government money and there is no responsibility by councillors that starts at the top. Work is still going on. As always cyclists ignore the dismount signs with impunity.

This is a pointless venture. Cars accessing Esher Road from the Longmore estate can no longer enter the inside lane while oncoming eastbound traffic moves into the outside lane. Cyclists, for whom a cycle lane was already in place on the bypass dual carriageway, are still forced to merge with traffic on the uphill stretch from the Princess Alice roundabout to Esher village. This hill would have been a better place for a cycle lane to reduce the traffic congestion which always occurs each time a cyclist struggles at low speed to reach the top.

The scheme is an improvement overall, but I don’t think it will encourage more people to cycle because the cycle lane just ends without joining up with other safe cycle infrastructure. I would not let my kids cycle to school along there because they would still have to deal with heavy traffic at each end. Also I think there needs to be some kind of physical barrier, eg wands or a raised divider, to prevent motorists using the cycle lane to undertake. Any such barrier would still need to allow emergency vehicles to use the cycle lane when necessary.
