Taking Action - Dutson Road

I've had an acknowledgement from the Council following my letter to them about the traffic on Dutson Road.

The road is heavily used carrying a mix of cars, pedestrians and heavy vehicles. Cars and lorries are often travelling at excess speed and, for large sections of the road, there are no pavements and pedestrians have to walk outside parked vehicles.

I suspect that there is no quick fix to this problem and we will need to consult residents on the best way forward, but I am asking the Council to treat this as a matter of some urgency as there have been a number of nasty (but fortunately not fatal) accidents on the road in recent months.

I'll write again as soon as I get a reply. In the meantime, if you want to comment on this or any other matter, please email alexfolkes@gmail.com or call 07984 644138
