Kingston Labour Councillor Lynsey Cottington has said there are potholes that could be a danger to school children.
Norbiton’s Labour Team, Councillor Linsey Cottington, Phil Bevin and Liz Meerabeau have identified potholes in the area that they believe could threaten the safety of children at King’s Oak School, Dickerage Lane. After inspections in the surrounding roads, Councillor Cottington spoke to residents close by and they confirmed that the disrepair had been made worse by larger vehicles using Dickerage Lane as a cut-through and speeding vehicles.
The Labour Team immediately reported the damage, and will be monitoring how quickly it is repaired. Phil Bevin said "While we fully support all the changes to road systems in the town centre, we urge Kingston Council not to lose sight of the very important problems that occur during the winter bad weather, and particularly so close to a school crossing.”
Councillor Cottington will be monitoring how quickly the repair is done and will be making the case for a complete retarmacing of road outside the school.
