I have been a Resident of Saltwood Close for 10 yrs now & have numerous serious car /motorbike accidents on Court Road over the yrs. We,The Residents of Saltwood, Highway, Charterhouse & surrounding Streets have signed petition after petition begging for some kind of safety measures to be installed but we always get the same response, the Council do not have the resources!!!!!!????? Wat will it take for this to be addressed, the death of a child maybe, we have lost a number of pets on this road & some very near misses on this junction as there is a rugby club directly opposite in Goddington Park which is very busy specially on Sunday with kids being dropped off/picked up & us as Residents have had to assist too many accidents outside our front doors so where do we go from here,are the "Council" waiting for someone to get killed, because they won't have to wait too long as every accident seems to get worse!! This road is a high priority now, surely???
