Mark­ings prob­lems must be ad­dressed

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Happy Ending After Puppies Stolen -

I would sug­gest that op­tion two is the best way of cor­rect­ing the sur­face of Ash­ford’s shared space (re­plac­ing the flume with bi­tu­men sur­fac­ing at a cost of £57,000), which hope­fully would leave enough money to paint all pedes­trian cross­ings black and white.

Ever since the shared space made its ap­pear­ance it be­came ap­par­ent that:

1. Driv­ers did not no­tice which mark­ings were cross­ings. I have seen el­derly peo­ple and preg­nant mums wait­ing in vain to cross the road.

2. Pedes­tri­ans who were not sure where to cross.

What an ap­palling over­sight it was when the de­signer did not recog­nise that there should be good mark­ings for pedes­trian cross­ings. June B Mathias Badlesmere Close, Ash­ford
