Accidents on Court Road

Councillors Glover and King were successful in getting yellow lines painted on one side of Court Road. Thanks to the perseverance of some local residents part of the accident black spot area near Tarnwood Park/Woodmere is now surfaced with anti-skid material. Despite this the screech of brakes can still be heard along with witness reports of some terrifying near misses including a van being driven recklessly on 2 wheels near Mottingham Station.

Matt Clare questioned the Council about future measures, but currently only temporary speed warning signs are proposed. Matt, Adam Thomas and the team have collected over 100 signatures. The number of damaged walls and accident statistics over many years clearly illustrate the danger. Matt said: “We will continue to work with local residents in campaigning for an extension of the anti-skid area and for additional warnings and accident prevention measures.”
