How do you feel about this proposal?
First we heard about the works been carried out on Widney Lane was on 12th May 22. We received a letter and a copy of the plan that could not be read. With the proposed crossing outside the school and the pedestrian crossing on Widney Lane the whole of Widney Lane will come to a stand still, yet another solution developed by someone who doesn't live in the area and understand how busy this road gets. As for the new cycle lane on Blossomfield Rd I'm still waiting to see someone actually cycle down it. Roll on the increased traffic jams at rush hours, normal busy times and also Christmas when Sears Retail Park is full too bursting. You have now turned a trunk rd into a single lane nightmare, when a bus pulls over the traffic just comes to a grinding halt and also has a frightening impact when emergency vehicles are trying to use it at busy times and the traffic both ways is at a stand still.None of these changes where needed and in fact are going to have a hugely negative impact on the local residents with a massive increase in stop / start traffic which obviously will cause an increase in road noise and pollution.

These roads are to narrow to allow a bike lane . Buses , large lorries and large delivery vans all use these roads and building a purpose built cycle lane will be more problematic and dangerous , I regularly cycle on my road Widney lane and have never had a problem .
I am resident of Widney Lane and object to this proposal . We will directly be effected by this proposal
Re: The proposed Pedestrian Crossing (buff tactile) on Widney Lane
From Cranmore boulevard island some vehicles drive too fast around/from the island . An accident waiting to happen - when people are crossing the proposed pedestrian crossing (buff tactile) .
We have a 8.5 meter motorhome - will this impede our driving on and off the drive with pedestrian crossing right outside our home (along with our other vehicles)
First we advised about this was 12th May when an illegible map was posted through our door !

why were none of these concerns addressed when the cycle lane was "upgraded" ?

Blossomfield road is causing a lot of confusion
