Region:  South East
Start date:  Summer 2019
Cost:  ÂŁ3.8 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  Spring 2020
Programme:  Junction Improvement programme

Progress report

We completed the survey works in June last year and have moved forward in updating the designs, ready to present to the public.

What's next?

We will be holding a public information event in Hooley, where more information on the proposed scheme will be available. The event will be held over two days at Hooley Village Hall, St Margaret’s Road, Hooley Village, Coulsdon, Surrey, CR5 3RB.

The format will be similar to the event held in August 2018.

Date Time
Friday 15 March 2019 9:30am to 12noon and 4pm to 7pm
Saturday 16 March 2019 9:30am to 12noon

The team will be highlighting changes made to the design since the event in August 2018 and seeking any further comments on the design as proposed. The constructor will be available to discuss the proposed construction sequence.

If the scheme is taken forward, residents will be contacted further with specific construction dates

Why we need this scheme

The A23 Brighton Road through Hooley is a strategic route between Brighton and London, and is a key route for motorists travelling to and from Gatwick Airport.

The proposed scheme will ease congestion, improve safety and provide better links for pedestrians and cyclists.

Aims

  • reduce accident rates
  • reduce congestion
  • improve traffic flow
  • improve provision for cyclists and pedestrians

The scheme in detail

Proposed improvements include:

  • reduction in speed limit from 40mph to 30mph through residential area
  • upgrade and synchronise the existing traffic signal timings through the crossroads of the A23 with Netherne Drive and Star Lane
  • new shared footway/cycleway along the A23
  • widen the A23 northbound to two lanes from Church Lane to Netherne Drive
  • widen the A23 southbound to two lanes from Netherne Drive to the Esso garage

Environmental information

We are aware that Hooley is in an Air Quality Management Area and the scheme will ensure there is no detriment to air quality.
