Dangerous junction with Preston Road

junctionFollowing a collision where a bicycle damaged her car, Dyke Road Drive resident Gillian Ludwig raised the issue of the junction at the bottom of Dyke Road Drive being dangerous with councillor Mike Jones. Mike acknowledges from personal experience as a cyclist and a pedestrian that this is a problem because of unclear priorties. Mike Jones contacted the Traffic Planners who have said they are going to make a detailed response to him. Presumably that means they are aware of problems there already. Watch this space.
