Having considered the views expressed during the consultation SCC’s Local Committee for Runnymede agreed that the existing pedestrian zone should be retained from Monday to Saturday with the same hours of operation (11am to 4pm) and exemptions. However the Local Committee also agreed the following: The pedestrian zone should also apply on Sundays (11am to 4pm). That a more effective method of controlling access to the pedestrian zone should be introduced to prevent vehicles illegally entering the zone during the restricted times. At the time the above was agreed, funding was not available to immediately introduce the improved access controls and to extend the pedestrian zone to also apply on Sundays. However, funding has since been allocated and rising bollards will shortly be introduced at either end of the pedestrian zone. For more information click the link below:
