|This campaign is to get the
footpath on the Ingatesone side of Stock Hills between School Lane and Honeypot
Lane re-instated. However this should not at the expense of the existing
|Photographic evidence shows
that there was once a footpath on both sides of the road between School Lane
and Honeypot Lane which at some unknown date was removed.
|There are a number of
compelling reasons why it should be re-instated.
|The most important reason
| Anyone attempting to walk
up or down Stock Hills other than in the middle of the night or very early in
the morning will realise that it is extremely difficult and dangerous to cross
the B1007 at its junctions with School Lane and Honeypot Lane. In both
instances there are bends preventing the walker from having full view of the
|Many motor vehicles travel
both up and down the hill at very high speed. Fortunately so far there have
been no fatalities . . . As I say so far.
|If the footpath was
re-instated on the Ingatestone side of the road, the danger for pedestrians
would be eliminated.
|Secondly if the footpath
was re-instated it would require narrowing that stretch to accommodate it, this
would cause traffic from the direction of Billericay to slow down which would
be beneficial to the well being of the village.
|I realise that this would
cost tax payers money, but the whole purpose of taxes is for the overall well
being of the community.
