ROAD SAFETY & TRAFFIC CALMING
Many road safety and traffic calming schemes have been tried throughout Maidstone. Most are expensive, some damage suspension and others are ignored completely, causing a hazard to pedestrians and drivers alike.
This 3D painted effect Pedestrian crossing has been successfully tried and tested by India, Iceland, South Africa and China.
M.A.G.I.C. is planning to lobby MBC & KCC to trial these relatively inexpensive road safety measures. UPDATE: We have spoken with KCC Councillor Paul Cooper (Maidstone South) with a request that he may consider using his KCC Members Grant to trial this at the pedestrian crossing located at Loose Road / Pickering Street. He politely declined but told us he would contact the relevant KCC Highways department for us………Awaiting reply !!
M.A.G.I.C. was founded by Cllr Paul Wooding to reinvigorate the stagnating debate regarding all of Maidstone’s road infrastructure condition and state.
