On 31 July I reported on this website that I had raised the lack of action by the County Council to clear the growing tress and bushes in the visibility splay at this junction with the local County Councillor.
Despite the length of time since the dangerous situation had been raised with the County Council (over two months now), no action has taken place, and now I have been informed that the officer involved is working full time on dealing with the A27 crash site at Shoreham Airport. Whilst it is right that the A27 site currently takes priority, it still does not explain why no action has been taken on the Canons Way visibility splay for over two months. And now the A283 is really the Worthing Bypass there has been a considerable increase in traffic, making it even more dangerous for vehicles turning right out of Canons Way with the continuing reduction in visibility from the growing trees and bushes in the visibility splay.
Hopefully there will not be an accident at this junction whilst the A283 remains being used as a bypass for Worthing, and that once the work at the A27 has been completed, the County Council will make clearing the visibility splay the next priority before/soon after the schools start again next week which will bring increased school traffic again to this junction.
