    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

  • Dangerous Road Design, 31st August
    The road from Templer Way approaching Drovers Roundabout is extremely bad road design and an accident waiting to happen. To sum things up the road leading up to the roundabout is 3 lanes, which then without warning becomes 2 lanes on the roundabout, and then becomes 3 lanes again. I have attached 2 photographs one showing the 3 lane approach to the roundabout and the second showing the third lane disappearing in to a lane witch is no more than about 24 inches wide and then opening back up to 3 full size lanes. It also looks like lane one on the roundabout is much wider than it actually needs to be which is the cause of this dangerous combination. I was almost involved in an accident here when a car traveling at speed in lane 3 run out of road almost resulting in them almost crashing in to the side of my car. I believe that this road needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.

  • Pothole/Water leak, 30th August
    This pothole appeared several days ago and is deepening. It is a potentially lethal hazard for two whheel traffic and could cause a very serious accident due to the fact it is full of water as is the surrounding road which means it can be unsighted in a constantly wet area. This hole has already caused damage to four wheel traffic.

  • Developers Sales/ advertisment sign obsuring Junction, 28th August
    Hi , I've this evening witnessed yet another after marth of a road traffic accident at the junction of Church Hill and Finn Farm Road/ Violet way. TN23 The obvious problem is an Eight Foot Sign which sits from the floor upwards and completely blocks the view of any on coming Road user to the right of the junction for any on coming traffic whilst approaching the Junction of Finn farm road when traveling along Church Hill From Kingsnorth. When approaching the Junction nothing can be seen of any on coming traffic from the right until the last possible moment plus if any on coming Vehicle or bike is level or actually behind the fore-mention advertising sign at any precise moment then an accident is unavoidable as on coming motorist cannot see them. If any images or photographs are needed to back this back they can be provided soon. I have seen the aftermarth four of five accidents with badly damaged cars (un-driveable) left there awaiting recovery etc on too many occasions now. Plus too many times I have approached the junction and have nearly been caught out by this problem.

  • Footpath unwalkable due to overgrown hedge/trees, 28th August
    The area of footpath next to the playing fields on Singleton Road is so overgrown with hedging/bushes/trees that you are unable to walk on the footpath. The cycle path next to the footpath is also dangerous. I witnessed a cyclist having to duck down to get under the branch. This is even more hazardous when it has been raining and the branches hang down further. The branches are at a level that it impinges the accessibility of both lanes which is dangerous. I also notice that approx. 6" of footpath at ground level can not be used even if the overgrowth was removed because of the mud/dead leaves ect that have built up. This should also be removed to regain the required width of path for the safety of all users. A lady told me she doesn't believe this has been cut back for at least 4 years.
