Making Warwick Road In Kenilworth Safer For All Users.

We the undersigned petition the council to to introduce road safety measures for cyclists, drivers and pedestrians on Warwick Road between Kenilworth and Leek Wootton. The measures should include streetlighting between Newey Drive and Wilkshire Road, speed reduction zones (for example, outside the Pavilions housing development) and safe cycling areas.

With more and more new homes being built in Kenilworth the volume of vehicle traffic on our roads is increasing all the time. This applies especially on Warwick Road between Kenilworth and Leek Wootton, not least because of the new homes at The Pavilions site.

At the moment there are no street lights between Newey Drive and The Pavilions site. This makes it unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists at night. Also there is no provision for cyclists on the road between Kenilworth and Leek Wootton. Perhaps worst of all the speed limit outside The Pavilions site, where many families live, is 50mph which can make it dangerous when turning onto and leaving the site.
