Improve Elm Grove – Petition

elm-grove-1

Back in July, following an incident where a cyclist was hit and injured by a left turning lorry at the Brighton Elm grove junction, local resident Dani Ahrens felt something needed to be done and put together a petition calling for a junction review at this spot. For more on this, look HERE.

The petition has so far gathered 200+ signatures and will be submitted to the council Transport and Environment Committee in October. Signatures can still be added until September 29th – to do so, look HERE.

To outline just how hazardous the current junction layout is, a new flyer has been put together detailing past incidents. See above and below for details or download a copy HERE

As we noted back in July,Brighton & Hove City Council has committed itself to supporting the  Space For Cycling Campaign  which includes support for:

  1. Protected space on main roads and junctions
  2. Removing through motor traffic in residential areas
  3. Lower speed limits
  4. Cycle-friendly town centres
  5. Safe routes to school
  6. Routes through green spaces

We very much hope that the council is willing to live up to this commitment and to have another look at this junction with a view to making it safe for all.

  1. Has anyone done an FoI & EIA request from the roads authority to make available the Section 39 reports that they are required – by law – to deliver (Section 39.3.a RTA 1988) and – this is totally wrong but it’s what law requires – then tell themselves what measures to take to prevent future crashes (Section 39.3.b & .c)
