Views sought on transport plan for town
The £100 million pathway will be set through the area to make it easier for public transport, cyclists and pedestrians.
It has been proposed to run from the Royal Surrey County Hospital and university area to the Merrow park and ride, passing through the railway station, Friary Centre and North Street, Guildford College, Guildford Lido, Stoke Park, Guildford Spectrum and Slyfield.
In order to take part in the consultation, which will end on October 29, residents need to fill in an online questionnaire at https://www. surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ SMCWEST
People will be asked which elements of the route they support and also which they would prefer to see implemented first.
Two public exhibitions will also be held to enable residents without access to social media or the website.
These will take place at The Park Barn Centre on October 10 from 5.30pm8pm and at Guildford Park Church on October 11 from 5.30pm to 8pm.
Results from the consultation will be assessed and the changes to the project will be added before the scheme is granted approval.
According to the plan, the corridor costs are estimated to cost between £75 million and £100 million, and could be developed between 2016/17 and 2050.
At a local committee meeting on Tuesday Councillor David Goodwin said he welcomed the consultation: “I will look forward to the end of the public consultation in six weeks’ time.”
