Change right of way at junction to resolve traffic issues

Reported via desktop in the Highway Enforcement category by Robert Johnson at 21:16, Wednesday 18 May 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Incorrect traffic flow prioritiy. The majority of the traffic at this junction flows between Downe road and Shire Lane. This results in a very large build up of traffic trying to exit Shire Lane onto Downe Road west bound as visibilty is very restricted when exiting Shire Lane. There is very little traffic coming from Downe. If the road was configured so traffic flows uninterrupted between Downe Road and Shire Lane and traffic coming from Downe on Downe Road has to give way at that junction. It would eliminate the traffic jam in Shire Lane and help to reduce the excessive emmisions due to it. It would also reduce the journey times of all those that get delayed at this junction.
