Oaklawn Road :: Shared Description

A minor road, the C131, between Randalls Road (at its end-on junction with Woodlands Road) at Pachesham, and the Leatherhead Road. As a largely straight road connecting two primary routes (the A244 and A245) in the vicinity of the M25 junction 9, it sees considerably more and faster traffic than might be expected.
Oaklawn Road was laid out soon after 1865 in consequence of the Leatherhead Common Inclosure Award (itself authorised by an inclosure act of 1859). It was an entirely new road across the former common, at a width of 30 feet, and named in the award as the Patsham Green Road. A slight kink was necessary at the crossing of the Patsham Brook in order to keep the alignment within the bounds of the common being inclosed.
The road serves few local properties: Pachesham Park Golf Club, Tyrwhitt House, Dorincourt (Queen Elizabeth's Foundation For Disabled People). The pavement was widened in the 1990s to improve access, including disabled access, although a lack of maintenance, particularly of the pavement along Randalls Road, discourages such use. The road became subject to a 40mph speed limit in 2013.
