Road or Pavement?

i notice the pavement seems to merge with the road outside the cafe opposite
waitrose, with cars parked, and buses sweeping into the station, its not a very pedestrian friendly zone! you take youre life in your hands walking along there and crossing from waitrose to east street, who enforces the 20mph ?

I agree totally. It's a dangerous spot. People should however use the traffic lights to cross rather than risking death outside Waitrose.

Yea exactly what it needs. Another post about who enforces the speed limits!

This road layout will be gone in two years. It is part of the Santon works for the Phoenix site.

The 20mph speed limit is irrelevant to anyone who thinks it is safe to walk directly across the road from Waitrose to the bus station. Most traffic is actually moving at less than 20mph, but that still doesn't make that walk safe. Using one of the pedestrian crossings is safer, even though they weren't designed to provide for access to the bus station. As has been said, though, the reconfiguration of the roads that is planned for the Santon project is an opportunity to solve the problem. In the meantime, be careful.

i take everybodys point about crossing, luckily i,m still young enough to run if needed!, but my other point is the pavement in front the bus station has now merged with the road, even cars parking there.
