Some minor changes are proposed for the roundabout at the junction of Addington Road, Layhams Road and Corkscrew Hill.
The roundabout is not wide enough for two vehicles to drive around it side-by-side, yet this does not stop some from trying to overtake on it! There have been a number of accidents and injuries at this spot and so additional ‘hatched’ markings are planned for the approaches from Hayes and Corkscrew Hill to bring traffic into single file, as well as some improvements to the pedestrian crossing points and cycle access routes.
There should be no adverse effect on traffic congestion.
The Council has now drawn up plans with a view to improving the safety of Bourne Way in the approach to the junction with Addington Road, Coney Hill Road and Tiepigs Lane.
The plans, which include new surfaces and amended white lining, have been agreed and it is now awaiting insertion into the work programme. Residents will be contacted directly by the Council prior to the start of work, which will also affect the easternmost section of Addington Road.
Improvements to the appearance of the tatty verges has also taken place, with the results becoming more evident as spring and summer progress.
