After a witnessed accident of another person falling off their bike in Kingston Road, on Saturday 26th May, Cllr Howson replied

“Officers visited Kingston Road this morning and agreed that work needs to be down to adjust the build outs to try to prevent accidents to cyclists. They will undertake the work on all of the 3 cycle-bypasses from your house up to St Margaret’s Road and on both sides of the road. We will have to see whether that solves the problem. i am hopeful that a timetable for the work can be put in place as soon as possible and will let you know when I hear any more.

I am discussing other more radical measures that might also deal with the speeding problems in the road.
