Install a safe crossing at West End, Brasted

We urge Kent County Council to act and install a pedestrian crossing at this location.

Why is this important?

As you may have noticed, the lack of a pedestrian crossing at the bottom of our road poses a serious risk to the safety of pedestrians, including children going to the school bus stop, elderly individuals, dog walkers going over to the rec and families. With the increasing traffic flow in our area, crossing the road has become increasingly hazardous, especially during peak hours.

To address this issue and ensure the safety of all residents, I am proposing the installation of a safe pedestrian crossing at the bottom of our road. This will not only enhance the safety of pedestrians but also contribute to the overall well-being of our community.

Protect our children getting to school safely as well as families and dog walkers accessing the recreation park safely and protect our Village from speeding drivers and HGV’s entering the village. We have the right to live in a safe village.

If you share our commitment to pedestrian safety and would like to support this initiative, please sign the online petition below.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and we look forward to your support in making our neighbourhood a safer place for everyone.

Your efforts have been instrumental in gathering over 100+ local signatures for our petition, which has empowered us to take our cause to our local councillors.

We have reached out to three local councillors, and we've had the opportunity to meet with Councillor Williams on-site. Additionally, we have another meeting scheduled with Councillors Robinson & Alger on April 27th. Your ongoing support in sharing the petition with friends and family will help us maintain this momentum.

In addition to engaging our local councillors, we have also attended the recent Annual Parish meeting in Brasted, where our petition will be on the agenda for the next meeting. Furthermore, we have forwarded the petition directly to Nick Chard at the KCC, as his support holds significant weight in council decision-making for our area.
