From Monday the 16th December 2019, drivers of vehicles travelling north on The Street, Compton (B3000) will be prohibited from turning right into Downs Lane. Access to Downs Lane will be via the roundabout and a left-hand turn.

This measure is part of an Air Quality Action Plan aimed at reducing queuing in the Air Quality Management Area south of the junction.

Guildford Borough Council will continue to monitor air quality in the Air Quality Management Area and report to Defra on the effectiveness of this measure.

This is just part of a larger number of actions we are taking to tackle air pollution across our borough –  our initiatives include 9 electric buses in our park and ride fleet, undertaking an electric charging network study, and encouraging businesses for sign up and use the green travel network easitGUILDFORD which promotes use of reduced cost public transport, cycling and car sharing initiatives.
