New pedestrian crossings move one step closer

A local campaign to build two new pedestrian crossings in Tunbridge Wells – one near the car-park on Major York's Road and the other on the A264 Langton Road, close to St Paul's Church - has moved one step closer with funding secured for their design.

The decision to allocate funding was taken by the Joint Transportation Board (JTB) which decides what local highways projects will go ahead.

Greg said:

"I have been delighted to have supported the Friends of the Commons' campaign, led by John Barber, over the last year and what a fantastic outcome – funding is now secured for the design of the crossings. Both Major Yorks Road and Langton Road are extremely busy so it will make a real difference to pedestrians. The crossing in Major Yorks Road is also at the end of a cycle route and, therefore, an important link in the town's cycle network."
