  • Pleased that SLOW markings have been added as a start. Hopefully SUSTRANS users will have right of way and new signage added to reflect this. Addition of 5mph signs at both ends of single track road is essential as high speeds are still being observed. New angled barriers to force cycle riders to dismount should be considered to stop young bikers from crossing without thinking !

  • Thank you for your enquiry and we're pleased to hear that the recent work to install the slow markings (on all approaches) has been well received. Works will shortly be undertaken by Sustrans to trim back the vegetation around this junction which should also assist with improving visibility for all users. We trust this assists.
