East Facing Slips on the M25 Sevenoaks J5

East Facing Slips on the M25 Sevenoaks J5

To require SELEP and the Highways Agency to include these East Facing Slips at Sevenoaks M25/M26

Why is this important?

The lack of proper connectivity to the National Motorway Network is stifling growth and economic recovery in West Kent and parts of Surrey and Sussex. National and International traffic has to use inadequate A and B roads, causing an immense impact to rural areas, not least of which is the deteriorating Air Quality and the almost continuous AQMAs from Maidstone to West Sevenoaks.

Reasons for signing

  • Large lorries and trucks are a danger to pedestrians along the extremely narrow pavements in Borough Green. It is only a matter of time before a large vehicle hits an unsuspecting parent and child or elderly resident walking along the A25. The roads are also too narrow for these large vehicles - I have almost had my car written off by lorries too big to turn on the correct side of the road at the entrance to Borough Green high street.
  • I have lived in and around Borough Green since the M20 was constructed. It was bad enough thirty years ago, but so much worse. Just hope its sucessful before one of the many school children now using the "lorry route" road is injured or worse.
  • It's only a matter of time before one of these trucks driving at 50mph through Borough Green fails to stop at the pedestrian crossing in between the Primary School and the playground
