Traffic calming Nizells Avenue/Osmond Road Junction

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to implement traffic calming at the junction of Osmond Road, York Avenue and Nizells Avenue. The 20-mph limit is largely ignored, there have been several collisions and numerous “near misses”. It is only a matter of time before a serious accident occurs. There is poor visibility for vehicles approaching at speed from York Avenue/Osmond Road due to a slight bend in the road. Pedestrians, dog walkers and cyclists take their lives in their hands trying to cross the junction to access nurseries, local schools and St Ann’s Well Gardens. The junction is a rat run for many vehicles including large HGVs, despite signs on Osmond Road indicating that the route is ‘Unsuitable for HGVs’. Many elderly residents live nearby and vehicles speed along Nizells Avenue creating a danger for children and dogs that run into the road from St Ann’s Well Gardens. There is persistent traffic noise and air pollution; car horns, squealing tyres, and irate motorists are a frequent nuisance

We require the council to address persistent traffic issues around the Nizells Avenue, Osmond Road junction

This ePetition runs from 04/10/2022 to 04/04/2023.

38 people have signed this ePetition.

Council response

Will be presented to the June 2023 meeting of the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee
