|Real Time Passenger Information on Christchurch Road|
However, we all have our wards which elect us and we must stick close to residents to understand what they are thinking and feeling and know where their priorities lie.
|Keep Clear Markings On London Rd / Fatherson Rd|
So, after much pressing, I am pleased to report that two "local improvements" - which would not have happened without residents and local ward councillors working together - are in place in Redlands.
The first is the "Real Time Passenger Information" board at the bus stop near the Queens Head on Christchurch Road. Evidence shows that if people know they can rely on information when the next bus is arriving, they will use the bus more often.
Secondly, the painting of the "Keep Clear" markings on London Road opposite the junction with Fatherson Road. Residents had told us how frustrating it could be trying to move in to the early morning traffic which would stop bumper to bumper. Though a "Yellow Box" was not allowed under traffic regulations, the addition of the Keep Clear markings is already helping residents.
If you have an idea for a local improvement - get in touch and we can see if we can make it happen.
We will be releasing details of a new set of wide-ranging residents parking protection ideas very shortly - watch this space!
