New crossings are dangerous waste
The new crossings in Somerset Road, Ashford make for a potential danger to blind and partially sighted people and also to young children by putting a kerb in their path.
This could trip blind people and children running straight across. I agree that this should not happen but is a likelihood. I could see nothing wrong with the old crossings, except that the indicators were not facing the persons crossing the road.
This is another example of a waste of public money by authorities not using common sense and wasting money on projects that are not necessary.
Others are of course the Eureka Skyway bridge across the M20 motorway that looks like they have forgotten to remove the cranes, and the so called Bolt sculpture in Godinton Road, which looks to me like a very large set-screw.
A bolt usually has a hexagonal head and screws into a nut. The only nut here is the guy who thought the idea up. David Brown Willesborough
