Call to stop ice danger on Burgh Wood, in Banstead
Concerned residents are calling for action to make sure a steep stretch of road is gritted when conditions become icy and dangerous.
Eighteen affected households have signed a petition asking for the gritting team to stop neglecting the western end of Burgh Wood, in Banstead.
The campaign comes after a woman reportedly lost control of her car, which slid across the hillside and hit a council grit bin on December 6 following snowfall.
Bob Dennell, who started the petition, said: "Had a pedestrian been on the footpath the result might have been tragic.
"Whenever we have a fall of snow, even slight, the slope is a nightmare and motorists get stuck coming up or imitate a toboggan going down."
Mr Dennell said several residents in the road have also told him they cannot use their cars for days during prolonged snow.
A Surrey County Council spokesman said: "We are always very pleased to receive petitions from residents and consider the merits of each one to see if action is required and if so what should be done.
"We have only just received this one and are considering the most appropriate route for it to go through, whether it is the local committee or our winter maintenance specialists."
