Increased use of SATNAV technology is partly to blame to the growth of short cut and rat run traffic through Hestercombe, Durrell and Dorncliffe Roads in that the devices choose the most direct route for drivers. However, there are many drivers just avoiding the traffic lights at the junction of Munster and Fulham Road. The scale of the problem is very serious in the view of the Petitioners and can be witnessed throughout the day but particularly during the commuting/journeying to and from work periods and school run times. I can count so many vehicles and motorbikes/ scooters, mainly turning right off the Munster Road but also turning left off the Fulham Road into Durrell Road. Our house looks down Durrell Road so I see this very clearly. These are residential streets, one with a children’s nursery on it, and not trunk roads through the Borough.
On reaching 1 signatures an officer will investigate the matter further
