Road is like Brands Hatch every day

As stated in the Express, work is soon to start on the demolition of the former Barden Mill, to be followed by the building of new homes.

Before all this commences and gets the go-ahead, why can’t the existing road be uprooted and make it as it was – two-way traffic?

Or the other option is to install traffic lights because, as it is now, it is an accident waiting to happen.

Bearing in mind Barden Lane is, or should be 20mph, this is a complete joke. Every day it is like Brands Hatch. Let’s heed and keep safety in our minds.
