Residents of Cliftonville can once again thank mild mannered councilor Clive Hart for making Thanet’s Streets safe to walk again. Pedestrians have had to dice with death, since the recent fire in Northdown Road as no safe walkway has been provided around the fire damaged building.
Incredibly Kent Highways did not arrange for a safe walk route around the burnt out building, to separate pedestrians from road traffic, it seemed that little or no thought was given for pedestrian safety, this has now been rectified, after Thanet's Labour supremo applied pressure to Kent highways.
I understand that Kent highways department will now get off their backsides and arrange for a pedestrian walkway around the obstruction.
Kent Highways, fearing further wroth from Clive Hart, have now put in the walkway.
On my daily cycle around Cliftonville I spotted the walkway being inspected by the Great Man himself, and Pam Pople – Community Development Support Worker who is involved helping the local community and business.
