Keep chipping away at them

In reply to Mr Joe Acecon, Mid-week Herald, March 11. Mr Acecon, I have previously explained in the newspaper that the A35/Kings Road is a trunk road and, as such, is the sole responsibility of the Highways Agency.

In reply to Mr Joe Acecon, Mid-week Herald, March 11.Mr Acecon, I have previously explained in the newspaper that the A35/Kings Road is a trunk road and, as such, is the sole responsibility of the Highways Agency.I chair the Kings Road Residents' Association and, together with the Honiton Town Council, have been facing uphill battles with this agency for the past three years; to get various safety precautions in and around Honiton town centre; especially in Kings Road and Monkton Road.Speed cameras are one of the suggestions put forward for Kings Road. The Highways Agency has spent thousands of pounds of tax payers' money and have come up with all sorts of reasons why "things cannot be done". Included in their reports, the agency states that "cars do not speed down Kings Road".It would be much more productive if people like yourself wrote to Highways Agency direct.However, from experience, you will find that one letter will not suffice; it is a constant struggle and only by continuously chipping away and not giving up will anything ever get done.Good Luck.J Sharman(by email)
