So far they have apparently only done the College Lane/Oaklands/New Park road end but already people can see its failed in its job.
They are using flexible wands as lane markers, but either someone in the council is a shareholder in the wand company or there was a sale on. They have used so many you cant see the wood for the trees.
Visually while driving the wands blur into each other as they make the previous 2 lane roundabout a single lane.

Now is the time for marching, Now let your hearts be gay,
Hark to the merry bugles Sounding along our way.
So let your voices ring, my boys, And take the time from me,
And I’ll sing you a song as we march along,
Of Sussex by the Sea!
For We're the men from Sussex, Sussex by the Sea.
We plough and sow and reap and mow,
And useful men are we;
And when you go to Sussex, Whoever you may be,
You may tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the Sea!
This is a formal request for a safety audit on the following bus stops.
Please find the reasons I feel that the following stops are unsafe and
require a full assessment. Any section numbers relate to the publicly available SOP
New government guidance and updates to existing ones
Courses and learning
Please find the reasons i feel that the following stops are unsafe and require a full assessment.
Yellow stop line is located mid way between kerbs on left turn junction. This means proper position provides no pavement.
The opposing stop location is not suitable distance from stop (180m away).
Parking of vehicles across from stop on double yellow lines outside lock shop cause narrow road and cause blind junction
I cant believe the wasted packaging.. all the bits in the top took a quarter of the box.
Hi, thank you for your message. Please DM us your email address so we can assist. Many thanks, REM
From Neighbourhood to Cyberhood: Over a third of Neighbourhood Watch members now more concerned about cybercrime than physical crime.
Cybercrime now feels like more of a threat than physical crime for a rising number of households across England and Wales, with more people either falling victim personally, or knowing someone who has been a victim of online theft, according to research from over 14,000 Neighbourhood Watch members. The research, carried out in conjunction with Avast, a cybersecurity leader in the UK, found that those who believe cybercrime is less of a threat than physical crime are firmly in the minority (15%).
A few years ago there was a fatal accident in Florence Road which raised calls for a pedestrian crossing. Once the 2 crossings were built, i noticed a very odd arrangement of barriers installed to on a shared (pedestrian/cycle) path that leads up to one of those crossings. Now, my original story was going to be about desire lines and how people just go around these barriers. About how the barriers didn't make sense, and a great chance to show off a desire line demonstration video. BUT since then it has turned into an example of planning "desire" over access desire and "if no one complains it cant be wrong".
The pictures show that the views around the crossing with the barriers installed. According to the documentation these are to prevent cyclists on the shared path from colliding with people coming from behind the bush and fence.
However as the photo shows the desire line would be to the side of the barriers across the un obstructed path. If you do not want to read the FOI request documents then the emails of note:
Recently you may have read my article on how Network Rail couldnt care less.
After nearly a week with the "ticket" reopened i have had a response
Network Rail is undergoing major refreshing of track and signals in the Barnham to Havant area https://www.networkrail.co.uk/running-the-railway/our-routes/sussex/upgrading-the-brighton-main-line/barnham-to-havant-improvement-works/ . Part of this work involves the closure of 2 major level crossing (Stockbridge Road and Basin Road) at the same time to both traffic and pedestrians. The only way to cross the line is to use the footbridge.
So therefore I realised that any Motability scooter, wheelchair or any other person unable to cross the footbridge would need an alternative route.
So i asked Network Rail
@networkrailwith the closure of both level crossings at #chichesterthis and next weekends to both vehicles and pedestrians, and with only the footbridge open, how are you maintaining #accessforall#,#Disability #wheelchairs"
If you have teenagers:
•Make sure they don’t have access to fireworks, alcohol, eggs or flour
.• Explain why they must not play tricks on strangers
.• Tell them that if nobody answers the door, or a ‘No trick or treat’ sign is on display, they must leave immediately
.• Remind them to stay with their friends and make sure they know that they should never enter the home of a stranger.
Following a recent FOI request it was discovered that West Sussex have not undertaken risk asessments for bus stops in years!
We asked some really simple questions and the results were shocking. Apparently they also work from a DRAFT copy of a manual instead of a final copy. So i suggest you all go and request a full risk asessment of your local bus stop now!
