|Junction from east before the tree (see arrow) was felled|
|West side - newly painted double-yellow lines, tree felled|
Suggested alternatives mentioned included improved signage. There is only one STOP sign on the western side of the junction, which is where Police have identified drivers had failed to stop in three crashes they investigated. A matching second STOP sign on the right hand side would get over the problem of the sign on the left hand side sometimes being obscured by a parked vehicle or overhanging branch.
I asked the Committee to reject RBC's proposal. I asked them instead to slow down (speeding) traffic on Albert Road, enhance signage at the junction with an additional STOP sign on the right hand side of the western approach, and further improve visibility on the western side of the junction.
