Road design W of Orpington station needs revisiting

The narrowing of the road by the bus stop means the area is no longer safe, with traffic locked up in rush hour and cars nipping past the buses which change drivers there. There will accidents involving pedestrians.
Widening the road by removing a flower bed and leaving the cycle path would solve the problem. The current design should never have been approved

This report has been referred to our Traffic Management Team who are responsible for the way traffic is managed on Bromley's roads; including, but not limited to, implementing new road markings and signage in relation to road safety and parking; walking and cycling improvements, including identifying locations for new cycle racks and installing Vehicle Activated speed signs - however, please note that responsibility for enforcing speed limits rests with the Police.
Where requests are made for changes, our Traffic Management Team will consider all requests but often there is a need for a full investigation, planning and consultation within the local area particularly around proposed new traffic schemes, and any considerations must be balanced with borough-wide priorities. This report is now closed on FixMyStreet and our Traffic Management Team will consider this matter.
