Kent County Council (KCC) is to carry out a major traffic survey and suggest options for traffic management in Oaks Road, Golden Square and East Hill, with a possible recommendation of making it a one-way system with a pedestrian crossing opposite the Recreation Ground.
The survey is one of two traffic surveys proposed for the town, but KCC only have an allocated slot for one in the next 12 months. A second survey, for a potential one-way system for Bridewell Lane and Highbury Lane, is scheduled for the following year. Both surveys will be funded by Tenterden Town Council.
On Monday, 8 March, the Town Council’s external committee decided to prioritise the Oaks Road/Golden Square/East Hill scheme as it has major implications for traffic flow and safety.
