East Street

In February 2021, work finally began on a cycle route along East Street. This consists of a shared-use footway on the NW side of the street between the High Street and a point opposite the site of the King’s Arms, just short of Kiln Lane. Where necessary, dropped kerbs have been inserted at side turnings.

Surrey’s engineers first presented proposals for a cycle route between Epsom town centre and Kiln Lane to the Local Committee in September 2010.

The termination of the route at the east end is rather unsatisfactory and fails to confirm with Local Transport Note 1/20.

The preferred way to transition from a shared-use footway onto the carriageway is straight ahead into a cycle lane.
