Earley Lib Dems ask Wokingham Borough Council to "Stop, Look & Listen"

The Earley Liberal Democrats were out in force last night, Thursday September 20th, at Wokingham Borough Council's full Council Meeting to raise awareness of speeding problems highlighted in our recent residents' survey,

Clive Jones, Lib Dem campaigner for Hawkedon, attended to hear an answer to his questions on speeding problems along Cutbush Lane and Chatteris Way, Clive said "Residents have made it clear in their survey responses that speeding is a problem and should be our top priority. That's why we're putting pressure on the Council to tackle speeding on Cutbush Lane, Chatteris Way, Carshalton Way and Kilnsea Drive".

Clive was also there to talk to residents attending to witness the presentation of a petition for a pedestrian crossing on Kilnsea Drive, in Lower Earley. The petition, which received 427 signatures, will be presented by fellow campaigner Anthony Vick. Anthony said "Ask almost any parent of young children and they'll tell you how dangerous it can be crossing Kilnsea Drive with young children, children have to cross it almost everyday on their way to school and the local park, that's
why we were more than willing to help parents when they asked us to do something to make the road safer".

We await a response from Wokingham Borough Council.
