CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

Durrington Town Council at its last meeting on the 26th of September discussed the issue of public safety along a specific part of Bulford Road Durrington SP4 8HA. The area of particular concern is the stretch of Bulford Road between Coronation Road and Poores Road. Due to parked cars on one side of the road impatient drivers are mounting the pavement alongside the shops Kebab Shop Palmers Papers so that two way traffic can be maintained. This is particularly prevalent early mornings and late afternoons. Bulford Road is in the heart of the village and is used to access all of the schools in the village those who walk along this part of Bulford Road are at risk of injury from the drivers who are mounting the pavement. The Town Council would therefore like to consider bollards being installed along this stretch of road as is in place outside of the chemist and library between Coronation Road and New Road.
