Readers will know that the argument being used by the Council to move the London Road planters is that they create a highway safety hazard because they were located in sight lines at the junctions of Weymouth St, Bedford St, and Snow Hill.
Yesterday I decided to test this for myself and take photographs at exactly the position a car driver would be in if waiting to turn at one of these junctions.Well surprise surprise you can actually see quite a long way along London Road. The only planter that is a bit too close to the sight line is the one at the junction of Snow Hill and I have told that was because Ripples wanted it opositioned there.
So why is this expensive and unnnecessary scheme being pursued by the Council? I don’t really know as all I am getting is obfuscation when I ask questions. It’s time for answers from Councillor Shelford.Leave a comment
