Concerns were expressed at Wedensday night's Suburban CC meeting that motorists could find themselves driving up onto the pavement in foggy conditions etc, if they followed the white line on the new pavement at the Sandown crossroads. The inside white line must be there to prevent cyclists from riding into the the regular drain recesses along the road that cut into the pavement.
Councillors also discussed posssible future options for Sandown Farm Lane to reduce the frequency and speed of rat-runners. There were calls for the 60 m.ph. limit to be reduced to 30. The possibilities of speed bumps and the suggestion of blocking the road off were also discussed.
