Quite a while ago highways put in a traffic calming narrowing of the road to slow traffic , since then a bus stop has also been put in. i am having problems and a lot nr misses as it appear to be on a curve in the road making it hard to see if any traffic is coming . ref to the bus stop this is causing more problems as if he is early he just waits there making any chance of seeing any vechicals coming impossible just wondering if anything can be done about this to make the road safer, oh i drive a panel van and am higher than a car so i imagine they have less visablity thank you rodney

The problem is still there , all that seems to have been done is a few trees cut back , unfortanet the problem is you cannot see in a straight line if anything is coming. if you have to stop and try to move from a standstill you have to move very fast to avoid anything that comes in your line of sight after you comitte to pull out when you think it is save to do so , it just seems to be in the wrong place and is encouraging drivers to drive faster in stead of the intended reason of slowing traffic down.
