Road safety campaigner thanks county council for junction improvement

ROAD safety campaigner Graham Chappell paid tribute to county council officials who acted quickly to improve visibility at a Fenland junction.

Mr Chappell raised the issue of visibility at the Upwell Road/Sixteen Foot Bank junction near March.

“The STOP sign is clearly visible now, after the excellent vegetation clearance undertaken last Thursday by Cambs CC,” said Mr Chappell who had raised the issue with Richard Preston, Head of Road Safety.

“Mr Preston has advised that a second STOP sign has been agreed for installation on the right side of Upwell Road which clearly will be welcome and helpful. Note the fading of the water entry hazard warning sign. No mention has been made as yet regarding renewal of this sign.”

Mr Chappell, founder of the Fenland Road Safety Campaign (Charlotte’s Way) is busy establishing the campaign as a registered charity.

He told Mr Preston: “I am very grateful to you and your colleagues for the very helpful remedial work that has now been done here following our previous communication and would welcome any further advice you may have on the enquiry I also made regarding options for additional enhancement of the warning signage at this junction.”

Mr Preston said the council is checking out the suggestion to refresh the water hazard signs.
