Following the BBNF meeting on Tue 2nd Feb, the Forum team have compiled the results of the second Questionnaire which show a good indication of how residents feel. Here’s the summary for Transport, Traffic & Parking:
1. 94% want steps taken to reduce congestion at Brookwood crossroads.
(a) 71% think re-routing the A324 along Cemetery Pales would assist in achieving that aim.
(b) 89% consider pedestrian and cycling access to Brookwood Station from Bridley and Pirbright should be provided through the Cemetery. The provision of cycle parking on both sides of the station is also suggested.
2. 88% are keen to reduce congestion at Pirbright Tunnel.
(a) 77% support improving the traffic light phasing to include traffic exiting from Brunswick/Bisley Camp Road. However it is pointed out that such changes might create more of a rat run and increase congestion.
The BBNF team would like to thank Kevin Davis for his work with the Forum in taking it from a concept to reality and being an effective councillor on our behalf. Kevin will be working towards representing residents in the new ward areas including “Heathlands”. The Forum chairmanship has been passed to Mark Craven, a Brookwood resident since 1988.
