There are elements of the Canterbury Road Project, that include plans to (despite the existing bypass) actively discourage through traffic coming into the main Village Centre.

The local shops and Businesses have already suffered due to the bypass - through traffic means passing trade - and it is very likely if the junction priority change at Aerodrome Road, the traffic light priority changes and any other measures to reduce traffic volume and encourage everyone to use the bypass, that at least some of the Businesses may suffer, or indeed close down.

Then there will be no Village Centre to speak of.

Width restrictions, or weight restrictions would be a simple measure to discourage the HGV's. Traffic calming measures would be welcomed.

We, the undersigned, call on the Kent Highway Services, to cease with any measures included in the Canterbury Road Project public documentation and plans, or otherwise, that will adversely affect the existing shops and businesses in Canterbury Road, Hawkinge.

Specifically ANY acts that are intended to reduce traffic volume and discourage through traffic.

The Prevent further measures to stop through traffic passing through Hawkinge Village Centre petition to Kent Highway Services was written by gill and is in the category Roads & Transport at GoPetition.
