Iford Lane Railway Bridge - traffic control

Finally it seems that there may be some hope for improvements to the footpath that passes underneath the railway bridge on Iford Lane.

Since I was elected I have been campaigning for the path there to be widened and for some form of traffic control to be installed.

Not only would these improvements make passing under the bridge much safer for pedestrians, but also it would break up the flow of traffic passing up Iford Lane, making it easier for residents there to get their cars out of their properties.

The cabinet member for Transport and Planning has finally confirmed that the highways engineers should look at a widened path and traffic control at the bridge. Let's hope they get on with the work as quickly as possible.
