I refer to the petition, signed by local residents regarding requests to re-open Brick Kiln Lane, Chesterton. I can advise you that receipt of the petition will be reported to Cllr Helen Fisher, Cabinet Member for Highways & Transport.
The county council welcomes suggestions from communities to improve their local highway infrastructure and we also take road safety extremely seriously. Sites are regularly monitored to target limited strategic resources at locations that provide the potential for the greatest accident reduction.
The Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and physical measures on Brick Kiln Lane which prevent traffic from using the road as a through-route, were implemented to provide road safety benefits to local residents and highway users and these continue to be realised.
On this basis, the council has no current plans to re-open Brick Kiln Lane to through-traffic and there are no plans to consider reviewing the matter in the future.
Should you require further information regarding your petition please contact David Greatbatch on 0300 111 8000.
