More details from petition creator
Excessive and increasing traffic is causing:- 1) Long queues of traffic forming at both ends of Gresham and associated roads. 2) Increased pollution. 3) Increased traffic noise. 4) Increase of potential for accidents 5) Anti-social driving/behaviour e.g. loud music, blocking carriageway, arguments. 6) Illegal activities e.g. speeding, driving along pavement to bypass blockages.
We are particularly concerned about the risk to the many children that attend the local schools in the area of Gresham Road.
Our suggestions are as follows:- 1) Move any corporate pick-up and drop-off shuttles to the car park at the Station entrance on Kingston Road. This is off the main road and is designed for buses picking up and dropping off. 2) Traffic signs enforcing the speed limit. 3) Speed bumps to be reassessed for height, condition, position. 4) Traffic lights at Kingston and/or Laleham Road 5) Bollards on the pavements. 6) Police presence during rush hours to prevent illegal and anti-social activities.
