Common Lane No through Traffic – Information – Common Lane, from just past the entrance to Appledore Close up to the junction of Nursery Lane is private, it is owned and maintained by the Parish Council and could be closed off completely if that is what the Parish Council decided to do. We have been experiencing a huge amount of extra traffic since the road closure of Castle Rising Road and traffic from far and wide have been using Common Lane as a quick cut through, some travelling at unacceptable speeds. We have tried contacting the County Council about this, but there is nothing they can do. They suggested the road signs that have now been put in place.
The Private Road signs have been placed at the entrance of Common Lane to try and deter traffic from out of the area and to try and make them use the proper diversion route, this has not been put in place to stop our local residents from using Common Lane, as you always have, and I am sure most local residents still are.
We are trying to protect our local residents in the area and those people using the Village Green.
