At Tuesday’s meeting of North Somerset Council, I presented a petition from residents of Dinghurst Lane in Churchill asking for improvements to road safety.
63 local people have signed the petition asking for the Council to take action to reduce speeds along Dinghurst Lane and to improve infrastructure for pedestrians.They are particularly concerned that the Banwell Bypass will increase the amount of traffic passing through the village.
I share residents’ concerns around the safety of the Dinghurst Lane for cyclists and pedestrians, particularly as we are looking to encourage increased active travel in North Somerset. I have already begun working with officers to identify possible solutions, and will continue to work with the team to ensure the Banwell Bypass project offers opportunities for improving transport infrastructure in Churchill for all residents and road users.
