Petworth Road crossing and removal of spaces in The Herald

The current issue of The Haslemere Herald led with the story of the Petworth Road crossing and removal of parking spaces to accommodate the bus bay: Pedestrian crossing’s green light. The article has interviews with several local shopkeepers to get their views. It also mentioned the long campaign to get a zebra crossing by Haslemere Museum.

A NEW pedestrian crossing on Petworth Road looks set to get the go-ahead, but it will mean the loss of two free parking spaces.
Surrey County Council has formally advertised plans for a zebra crossing around the corner from the High Street, where there is a bus stop at present.
However it would mean moving the bus stop further east, to the lay-by where cars can currently park for up to one hour. The scheme will cost about £60,000.

For full story, see this week’s Haslemere Herald.

    £60,000! How in the name of God do they get to that? Insane. Two mens wages for a year. And I’m a chartered surveyor.
