More details from petition creator

This petition addresses two issues which might be dealt with by one solution.

The first is that the pavement on Church Street at the junction with Vicarage Road is very narrow and needs widening. At its narrowest, immediately outside The Bells public house, it is less than 70cm making it unsafe for the disabled and elderly and wheelchair and pushchair users. Also those exiting The Bells do so almost straight onto the highway.

The second issue is the speed at which traffic often passes through this junction. There is a 20mph speed limit but this is rarely observed, especially in the rush hour when Church Street can become very busy with traffic seeking to avoid traffic congestion in the middle of Staines. A widening of the pavement and consequent narrowing of the road could, if appropriately designed, reduce the speed at which traffic negotiates this junction.
