Batchworth Heath Junction

We the undersigned petition the County Council to visit and urgently propose a workable solution to the immediate danger to pedestrians and cyclists at the dangerous junction at Batchworth Heath. The residents of Moor Park and Eastbury are very concerned that pedestrians have nowhere to cross and cyclists have to face four opposing traffic flows.

We urge the County Council to improve safety for all vehicle drivers, cyclists and pedestrians and reduce conflicts between traffic flows by exploring and implementing as appropriate:
1) New traffic rules at the top of Batchworth Lane leading onto Rickmansworth Road, so that there is only one option (not two) for drivers turning out of Batchworth lane into London Road
a) A no right turn on the left hand lane
b) A no left turn at the right hand lane
2) A review of common land and if needed, an appeal to the Secretary of State for the introduction of a roundabout at this junction in view of the increased number of traffic movements, visibility splays and the increased speed ability and reduced noise of modern cars.
3) New and improved cyclist and pedestrian paths from Batchworth Heath to Rickmansworth along London Road (A404)
