3.            Deepdene Roundabout


8.      Deepdene Roundabout is chaotic. At peak times this feature is difficult to traverse for most cyclists and nearly impossible for pedestrians. Westbound and north/south traffic queues at peak times also pose major environmental problems for local residents.


Note: Deepdene residents have recently submitted a petition for traffic calming in this area.

Suggestion: Deepdene roundabout may be helped by signalled pedestrian/cyclist crossings on the eastern (Reigate), northern and southern exits. Crossing requirement at western exit may be satisfied by crossing further towards the town centre at, say, Pippbrook.
