Bus lane petition signed by 120
8:00am Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
A PETITION to lobby for changes to an ‘unsafe’ bus lane in Haydon End has collected 120 signatures.
Resident and parish council election candidate Phil Martin raised the petition over fears the bus lane, which was put in place as part of the initial plans for the development, is confusing for drivers.
Phil said he felt the views of the community need to be better represented and so he raised the petition to highlight the issue.
He said: “There is some confusion over the bus lane in Haydon End and at the moment drivers are driving straight across it as if they have right of way when they do not. The main point is it is unsafe.
“The petition has collected 120 signatures so far and the community feel that something needs to be done. I want the community to have a voice and so that is what I want to give them.
“The bus lane was put in as part of the original planning application but the community has moved on now and there was no consultation about it.”
