Do away with pavement area

From: Clive Warren, Baird Drive, Hastings

Simple solution to Rock-a-Nore parking exit problems – widen road exit at East Parade junction to two lanes, thus doing away with the pavement area.

This will allow up to twice as many vehicles to leave.

A further improvement – changing traffic lights at this junction to pedestrian controlled lights only and introducing a mini roundabout.

In normal conditions, this would keep traffic flowing and allow pedestrians to cross.
