I live at 21 Rosehip Close and am directly affected by the proposed changes and wish to formally object.
If I have understood the plan correctly there will be limited right turn opportunity out/in of the estate due to the broken chevrons. May I also suggest you try to simulate the experience that residents will face by looking at access to Stokewood surgery which also benefits from the pedestrian crossing stopping traffic, bearing in mind that traffic flow is much greater out/in of the estate compared with the doctors and is more concentrated at peak times.
I would support a left hand only turn out / in of the estate at the proposed location with a no left hand turn out at the existing junction enabling traffic that is turning right out of Sandy lane more opportunity to cross.
Clearly the junctions need to be synchronised, SCOOT, at peak times through the ped, blackberry drive and Allington Lane would make a lot of sense, with MOVA At off peak times.
In summary a poorly thought out proposal by consultants with limited local knowledge . As a traffic management professional may I suggest a second opinion.
