Road safety audits for new crossing at Chilmington Green

The request was partially successful.

Dear Kent County Council,

1. I would like copies of the road safety audits for the new junction on Coulter Road for the Chilmington Green development.

I am particularly interested in the sections of the new pedestrian crossing on what has now been adopted as Parkland Drive (to the west of the roundabout).

2. Please could you confirm - even if only approximate (year / quarter) - the dates for any upcoming road safety audits?

3. Please could you confirm how safety on this crossing will be monitored, outside of the road safety audits?

Yours faithfully,

Mr Broughton

Kent County Council Production Agent,

Thank you for submitting an enquiry to KCC Highways and Transportation.

Your reference number is shown below and you can track the progress of
this at www.kent.gov.uk/highwayfaults

Logged Date: 27/09/2019 11:56:42
Enquiry Number: 15818728
Enquiry Subject: Business Support FOI Request, FOI Request - Single Issue
Location: Provisional Street

We aim to fix:
• Danger faults within 2 hours
• Safety Hazards within 7 days
• Routine faults such as potholes, streetlights and soft landscape issues
within 28 days (unless we believe it to be more serious in which case it
may be done sooner)
• Traffic Signals within 4 hours if they are urgent or within 7 days if
less urgent
• Drainage issues within 90 days
• All other faults will be scheduled to our planned maintenance

If you telephoned us to report this issue, please consider using our
online fault reporting tool next time. It’s been designed with the
following in mind:
• It’s the quickest and easiest way to tell Highways about issues
• See existing faults (raised by customers and highways staff) and
highways assets such as streetlights & trees.
• You are able to give us specifics about how bad a fault is and exactly
where it is without having to get someone on the other end of a phone to
understand it first
• You can upload photos to help us to prioritise repairs
• It saves the council £5 on every enquiry logged online as that’s what it
costs KCC to manage a phone call and faults go directly to the relevant
Highways team rather than having to be triaged first
• The reporting tool can be easily accessed from all kinds of devices (its
optimized for smartphones and tablets) and can use local KCC libraries or
gateways if you don’t have internet access at home
• It frees up our Contact Point staff to handle emergency and complex
enquiries

Watch our new video which guides customers through the reporting tool.
