Antony Hook has asked Highways officials to review whether Athelstan Road can be made safer, with traffic calming or other measures, after a boy was hot by a car last Friday, causing a serious injury.
“I am sorry to hear this and was told about it by a governor of the school. Everyone will wish the young lad a full and speedy recovery. I have written to his parents to send my best wishes.”
“Local data shows there have been a number of serious incidents on Ethelbert Road and Athelstan Road in the last few years. They are publicly viewable on crashmap.co.uk”
“I have written to KCC managers to ask that they consider whether some road safety measures would be appropriate on these roads.”
"It is essential that residents on Athelstan Road are consulted about the form of any changes to the road that are made."
