  1. Sort the speed out on this dangerous road!!!. I have lived here 20 years and this part of the A259 scares me stiff. I live on Pashley Farm, just off of it and have to pull onto the 259 it and off off it on a nasty bend more than twice daily, along with several neighbours. How someone has not been KILLED I DO NOT KNOW! It needs calming measures or new speed restrictions in force URGENTLY. Many of us residents along this part of the A259 take our lives in our own hands when getting out of our drives, I have two teenage drivers and I worry for their safety. It needs to be addressed SOONER than LATER before a fatality. I rest my case…..
