Call for Action to Fix Crumbling Footways

Liberal Democrats on Surrey County Council have called on the Conservative administration at County Hall to put more money towards improving Surrey’s footways and to bring them up to a decent standard.

The most recent condition survey in 2014 showed that one-third of the county’s footways were ‘functionally or structurally impaired’. Since then little has been done to tackle the problem of sub-standard footways in the county whilst resources have been concentrated on resurfacing Surrey’s roads.

We have asked the County Council for this additional funding as we believe that the condition of Surrey’s footways is just as important for pedestrians as the condition of Surrey’s roads is for motorists except that footways and pedestrians have not been given the priority they deserve.
