A259 New Zebra Crossing Consultation

Roadworks signIt's really good to see Kent County Council are now consulting on a new Zebra crossing on Sandgate Esplanade.

When Sandgate Parish Council were being consulted on the works KCC were putting in place for the Cinque Ports cycleway, I was delighted when the engineer on the project, Russell Boorman, was helpful and enthusiastic at my suggestion to add an Esplanade crossing to their plans. And they have!

The design of the crossing and its location (near the foot of Brewers Hill) have been selected to minimise the loss of parking (one side is double yellow lined already), and that is further reduced as a length of double yellow lines elsewhere on the Esplanade will also be shortened to give back some more spaces.

You can read the proposals in full at http://www.sandgatepc.kentparishes.gov.uk/a259-new-zebra-crossing-consultation/ and if you are one of the many people over the years that has asked for a crossing on the Esplanade, PLEASE do take part and send a message to sandgateconsultations@kent.gov.uk in support of the proposals, which have been designed to minimise loss of parking and create a safe crossing point.
