Dymchurch Road Safety


Dymchurch Parish Council need your help

This questionnaire concerns Road Safety along the A259 and asks you for your opinion on problems encountered by residents.

Residents of Fairways have told the PC and KCC that they are fearful of crossing the road to access the bus stop and the beach. The speed limit is 40mph at present. In addition there have been calls for safer roads on the 40mph stretch of the winding road between Burmarsh Road and Tower Estate, where there are narrow turnings on to the A259, resident’s drives on blind bends and access paths and steps to the beach with no clear vision of vehicles approaching at 40mph.

We would appreciate you response to the following questions whether you are a resident in the areas mentioned or a resident of the Parish of Dymchurch as a whole.

Please note that the Parish Council can only pass on your opinions to KCC Highways who are the managing authority for the Highway. By completing and returning this questionnaire you will assists us in informing the KCC Highways Authority what is supported by the residents of Dymchurch and what you find important, they will then make the decision on whether to carry out any work. Results will be published in the next newsletter.
