CATG Action / Recommendation

09/11/2018 15:52:37 Update from CATG on 7.11.18: There is no dropped kerb facilities for pedestrians at the junction of Woodlands Road & Clements Lane and none on the opposite side of the road to the junction Clements Lane & Shaftesbury Road. This results in wheelchair and mobility scooter users needing to use the busy carriageway for significant distances in order to cross the junction to continue on either Clements lane or Shaftesbury Road. Estimated cost of the works is £1500 per dropped kerb. BW suggested that the TC should speak to C&G Frys, the developers of the Hill Brush Factory site adjacent to the site to see whether there were any development funds to carry out these works.
