  • Harmston Rise failure to stop

    As discussed at pedals meetings I confidently step out onto pedestrian crossings...
    I keep it in mind that the car may not stop...

    Really need to challenge powers that be over this one.
    Either its enforceable and the driver needs to be cautioned by NP suggest Driving with due care and attention.
    NCC need to get their act together with the level side road treatments.

    Be that rumble strips better approach warnings plastic wands to tighten the space.

    silver lining: video shows the driver is riding the brakes around the whole corner through the crossing. He is already braking when I enter the challenge. shows the feeder speed of 40mph is too high.

    Suggested action: enter formal notice (for legal purposes) to NCC regarding inherent danger to vulnerable road users at side road treatments suggest it will apply to all 42 prosed and actual sites.

  • Heatherly Drive

    see youtube video.

    No threat to me in this instance but shows poor driving and worse engineering to allow a car to take the corner in 3rd gear and slink onto the wrong side. See similar issue with parking transit van. need for some bollards/ traffic management.

  • Poor drainage Harmston Rise

    Harmston Rise.
    Inadequate drainage.

    Any other side road treatments failing already? do they need to be laying drainage kerbing?

    Ranty Highwayman has a note on them. Given the flooding that is prone on the ring road probably need to be pushing this with KM for the side roads that will be built to get them spec'd up to include the drainage.

  • Right turn into Scotland Road

    Created by Trothben // 1 thread

    I use Scotland road as a lower NOx route. and its easier to join than going on the ring road side of Heathfield primary.

    Problem arises from vehicles waiting for the Nottingham Rd & ring road junction at the futurist blocking visibility of the junction. Makes it harder to turn and increases the threat.

    Suggested solution: Keep clear markings across the junction.

    If agreeable will email KM about it.
