05/03/2018 08:42:39 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined.

Issue

The bend on the A429 in Corston is still a very dangerous bend. In the last month we have had two further bad accidents. One driver only narrowly escaped with his life. If possible will attach a photo. I know traffic calming measures were done last year but they are not sufficient. We would like to raise this in the next area CATG meeting in March please.

Who is Affected

Safety perspective house drivers other road users.

What has been done so far

As stated above we have pushed for some calming measures which have been done but have not done the job. Two serious accidents and we still think one day there will be a fatality here.

What would resolve issue

More signs. MOre chevrons ALL along the brindge and put safety above aesthetics and retaining the integrity of the bridge. A flashing sign at the start of the village from malmesbury showing speed.

Who needs to come together

Highways agency, the parish council and the village all to match fund raise for this extra signage.
