Wed 14 Sep: Estate Walk crossing Shire Lane to High Elms Country Park

Reported via desktop in the Public Right of Way footpath category by Friends of Green Street Green Common at 18:32, Thursday 15 September 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

At the point where the marked Estate Walk crosses Shire Lane to High Elms Country Park there is a blind approach from the right. Shire Lane has a 40mph speed limit but many vehicle are driven noticeably faster. There is no warning to motorists that pedestrians may be crossing (as elsewhere on Shire Lane). Nearer to High Elms Road the London Loop crosses Shire Lane. Given the increase in walking prompted by the pandemic may we suggest some road danger reduction measures are introduced on Shire Lane between, say, Church Road and High Elms Road; e.g 'Beware Pedestrians Crossing' signs, reducing the speed limit to 30mph, improving sight line. For sure it would be appreciated by, and encourage, visitors to High Elms. TIA
