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.
