A project to improve access for pedestrians to Brasside will start next week.
Widening of the footpath under the East Coast Mainline bridge will make it far safer for people to get in and out of Brasside.
This is something that we have wanted to improve for many years and the recent spike in people getting out and about and walking this way to access cycle and walking paths made it even mroe essential.
The plan which is a three month trial to see what the impact is on road users, will include sensor traffic lights for motorists driving in to and out of the village. They will be timed to ensure reduced delays at peak periods.
All residents in the surrounding area are receiving letters explaining the scheme.
Let us know how it works (or doesn’t). The more people confirm their support or otherwise for this once installed the better as it will help us evaluate the success.
