Item 6 – Speed Indicator Sign (SID)
The list of sites for the SID had been submitted to KCC. Out of the 6 KCC would only agree to 2, both of which were sites where there was increased traffic and this would be a drain on the battery. The Speedwatch team had been consulted and had set out their comments.
After discussion, and taking into account the comments from the Speedwatch team, it was agreed to recommend to full Council the offer of the SID should not be taken up.
Crossroad alterations – it was agreed to write to KCC asking for any update
The Chairman said there was some confusion over the speed limit in Pizien Well Road – It was agreed to contact KCC to find out what the requirements were to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 30mph
Part of he drain/manhole cover in Bow Road opposite Hanbury Close has collapsed and was noisy when vehicles drove over it. This would be reported
The 40mph limit sign on Tonbridge Road east approaching Pizien Well Road was completely obscured by the hedge and could not be seen until vehicles were parallel with it. A request to move the sign would be requested.
