Rural Rat Runs!

The problems of rat running traffic, inconsiderate driving and danger to walkers, cyclists and equestrians on our rural lanes are all too familiar in Kent.  CPRE has long been campaigning for lower speed limits on rural lanes and for better provision to be made for non-motorised road users.

We do not normally favour road closures, but in the case of Cornford Lane, an ancient lane on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whose character and safety are being destroyed by through traffic, an experimental Traffic Regulation Order and a barrier half way along it to prevent its use as a through route by motor vehicles appears to be the best solution.  See the website of the Friends of Cornford Lane www.cornfordlane.co.uk for further details and to add your voice to their petition.
