As promised, Access Walden passed on your great comments from our recent post (here) to ECC. They responded very quickly indeed and we are pleased to say that they have taken all feedback seriously. They have stated that they do not want the scheme to be perceived as misleading, confusing or poorly executed and have therefore taken away all constructive comments on signage, traffic calming and lack of footway.
It is important that we must consider the restrictions this scheme has been constructed under. There are issues on road width and two-way traffic considerations, these make the scheme difficult to implement without some compromises. In reality, there will never be a two-way, segregated cycle/footway running along the entire length of Wenden Road, but we feel that after October half-term, some refining will be undertaken to give us a better and ultimately, a much safer route to and from the station.
You may continue to add your comments to the previous article and we will continue to respond as best we can.
