Transport & Roads

In terms of transport, site 46 is located well beyond the existing confines of any urban area restricting the potential for sustainable travel. The existence of Wanborough Railway Station is only of a marginal benefit.
 
The area  is bounded by the D60 (Glaziers Lane); the C16 (Wanborough Hill and Westwood Lane) and the A323 (Guildford/Aldershot Road).
 
I cannot envisage any so called "highways improvements" that could be undertaken, particularly on the C16 or D60 that would enable those roads to cope with the increased traffic from 1,100 homes and a Secondary School.
 
The A323 is already a busy major route, and scope for "improvements" to this road are also limited.
 
Although I suggest that in any case  Highways should consider installing a  passing lane, Guildford bound at the junction with Frog Grove Lane, Wood Street Village, to ease the congestion caused by commuter traffic turning right and causing considerable tailbacks. But that is a current, existing problem.
There would be access issues relating to visibility and safety for pedestrians and cyclists, which could be difficult to resolve given that the roads are fundamentally rural roads, and the existing structures of the Westwood Lane Railway bridge and the Glaziers Lane railway Road bridge. The restricted headroom of the Westwood Lane bridge would also prohibit double decker buses from accessing the proposed school.
