Chris and Ron met today with an officer from County Highways and had a walk around with him in Downhall Park Way. This is what we have to report:
The junction with Rawreth Lane (where an accident took place recently). County Highways have confirmed that the lighting here is substandard and an extra lamp-post will be installed. It will be placed on the corner of Downhall Park Way and the Rayleigh side of Rawreth Lane. This is good news!
County Highways are also considering having a pedestrian crossing here and think that funds may be available, left over from sums obtained from developers along Rawreth Lane. We will keep you advised when we know more.
We also asked about having yellow lines here for just a few yards down Downhall Park Way, just keep the junction clear of parked cars. However County Highways aren’t convinced yet that this is needed. Any photos from residents showing cars parked inconveniently here would be very useful – please send them to us – and no, we don’t want pictures of your car parked there.
The “bend” roughly from Salisbury Close to Bristol Close. We spent some time looking at this stretch of the road, and County Highways aren’t convinced yet that there is any problem with parked vehicles here. Once again, we will need photographic evidence – if you can assist, please contact Chris or Ron.
