  • Install a toucan crossing at mini roundabout on Ship Lane

    We the undersigned petition Thurrock Council to: replace the mini roundabout on Ship Lane which is being heavily used by HGV regularly even though there is a weight restriction.

    There is great concern over the safety of residents using the Zebra Crossing in Ship Lane at the junction intersecting the High Street Aveley and the public footpaths in the immediate area.

    We the undersigned petition Thurrock Council to: replace the mini roundabout on Ship Lane which is being heavily used by HGV regularly even though there is a weight restriction.

    There is great concern over the safety of residents using the Zebra Crossing in Ship Lane at the junction intersecting the High Street Aveley and the public footpaths in the immediate area.
    Over some considerable time there has been an increase in traffic using Ship Lane which also includes an increase in HGV traffic too, despite there being a weight limit of
    7.5 tonnes applicable to Ship Lane.
    The issue with HGV’s is historic and has never been resolved.
    Regularly cars collide at the junction of Ship Lane and the High Street.
    The safety barriers are often wiped out by HGV lorries mainly turning right from Ship Lane in the direction of Stifford Road, some HGV lorries also turn left too.
    We currently have three bollards just across the road in the High Street outside the Ming Long restaurant which have been uplifted from the pavement and in a dangerous position on the public footpath.

    The Landlord of the Old Ship Inn has suffered financial loss where the cellar doors situated on the public footpath in Ship Lane are regularly damaged due to HGV lorries driving over the pavement.
    It is the intention to gather support from local residents to petition Thurrock Borough Council to remove the Zebra Crossing in Ship Lane and replace it with either a Pedestrian or Toucan Crossing.

    Due to the increase in traffic it would be more appropriate for a 3 way lights system to be implemented in Ship Lane and 1 in either direction of the High Street.
    In the interest of public safety, it would be sensible too if the safety barriers were extended in all directions of Ship Lane and the High Street.
    Due to safety concerns for all pedestrians including the elderly, disabled and the local primary school children which use the pavements and the current Zebra Crossing in this area.

    The cost implications to tax payers would be reduced with regards to repeated replacement of damaged safety barriers if the above improvements were implemented
