Buses using Rookery Rise (Update)


As can be seen in earlier post of mine

'A carriageway width of 6.75 metres is required. Long straight roads which encourages higher traffic speeds and are visually monotonous, are not acceptable and a flowing alignment of curves is preferred with a minimum centre line radius of 60 metres. Lane widening is required on bends and if a bus router should be bus bays at every stop, designed in accordance with the recommendations in “Roads in Urban Areas”.'

NOTE: and if a bus router should be bus bays at every stop, designed in accordance with the recommendations in “Roads in Urban Areas”.'

Whilst what we actually have in the vicinity of my property is a highway with no lane widening on the bend, no proper cross fall on the bend, no level footway on the outside bend of the road, no bus bays and double decker buses frequently using the road. Another Council cock up!



And if that's not bad enough part of Rookery Rise which the double decker buses are using is still unadopted.

Buses now using Rookery Rise

If things weren't bad enough, no adequate lane widening, cross fall or footpath on the bend in the vicinity of my property buses are now using Rookery Rise instead of Station Road. Here is a Freedom of Information request to find out if the council has given permission for buses to use Rookery Rise (sorry about the typo) in spite of part of it still being un-adopted.

Freedom of Information (Update)

I have at last received a response to my Freedom of Information request. It confirms what I have always known, that the Local Government Ombudsman's office lied to me during their investigation into my complaint. More LGO lies will be exposed in due course.
