    Mr Valek, District Manager, KCC Highways, Transportation and Waste Service introduced the report which provided an update on schemes approved for construction in 2020/21.

     

    During presentation of the report was noted that:

    • As the end of the 2020/21 year was approaching, much of the programme had been completed.
    • There was an update to Appendix H, the renewal of the traffic signal at Carlton Avenue, Broadstairs had been completed.
    • There was an update to Appendix I, the small mammal warning signs had been installed in Canterbury Road and Park Lane, Birchington.

     

    In response to questions and comments from Members it was noted that:

    ·  Concerns had been raised to a Member that the street lighting in Elm Grove, Westgate was inadequate to allow women to safety walk at night time.

    ·  The interactive 30mph sign at the Brunswick road junction near Quex Park was not working and would not be replaced.  Members received a lot of correspondence from residents in the area who had concerns about the speed cars travelled across the junction.  Mr Valek would arrange for Councillor Fellows and Councillor Hurst to be provided with more information regarding the issue. 

    ·  Crash data history could be accessed through a link on KCC highways website.(https://www.kent.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/road-safety/crash-and-casualty-data)
