Raymond Road Update

The Council are currently in the process of determining which traffic schemes will be put in in 2006/7 and are considering the inclusion of a traffic signal scheme at Hill Lane / Raymond Road, with the primary objective of providing better crossing facilties for pedestrians and cyclists.

My own view is that a crossing is welcome but traffic lights are not. No doubt if the Council decides that it wants to look at this scheme for next year then a set of plans will be drawn up and circulated. Please get in touch if you have views on this.

The trafic on Raymond Road is busy. The traffic lights would course a build up of traffic on hill lane and Raymond Road.

I'm more concerned about the speed of traffic a long Raymond Road. There is a blind corner and cars shoot round at more than 30mph.

The money could be spent on this, which is a real problem for residents and their property.
