New cycle route on West Hill – Christ Church Road

In the spring of 2015, work finally started on a cycle route along Christ Church Road and West Hill. It was a condition of planning consent that the developer of Noble Park should provide this route.

The completed route includes road tables across side roads.

The footway has been widened between Station Approach and Stamford Green to allow shared use by cyclists and pedestrians. To the west of Stamford Green there is a new cycle route behind the church, connecting to the route around Epsom Common.
The section past Stamford Green, where the footway width is constrained by a ditch, is proving problematic.
Since the Noble Park development included parking for 659 cars, we very much hope that this route will tempt residents to leave the car at home and go by bike.
