The Local Highways Panel met last Thursday afternoon. It may not be worth giving a full report on the meeting – nothing terrible happened , nothing wonderful happened. However one item was about having a yellow box junction at the the northern arm of the Fairglen Interchange in Rayleigh. A number of people have been pushing to have a yellow box junction there, to stop drivers who want to turn left to Rayleigh from blocking the roundabout. This has now been agreed in principle, but councillors were a bit bemused to hear that this paint job now has to go to one of the design team.
Chris Black queried how long it takes the paint to dry – and was told it can dry overnight, in good weather, He urged that the ‘design’ and the actual painting be done as soon as possible while it is still summer.
