Bekesbourne Footpath from Adisham Road to Station Road

We the undersigned petition the council to urgently create a footpath along the route from Aerodrome Road to Bekesbourne Village Hall (incorporating Adisham Road, Chalkpit Hill and School Lane) as detailed in the Bekesbourne with Patrixbourne Parish Council Highways Improvements Plan. This is necessary to provide pedestrians with safe access to local facilities, St. Peter’s Church and Bekesbourne Station.

Kent County Council should be aware that Chalkpit Hill with its ‘blind’ bend, narrow lanes and 40MPH speed limit poses a significant risk to pedestrians and creates hazardous conditions for motorists. Pedestrians cannot be seen by motorists approaching Chalkpit Hill from either direction and are often forced to walk towards the centre of the road in order to create a clear line of sight. This is a dangerous situation which is likely to cause a serious accident and therefore a footpath for this section of the road should be given priority.

This ePetition runs from 26/03/2021 to 24/06/2021.
