Make Epping Forests Roads safer for use

Review and address the road safety issues for Horse Riders, pedestrians and cyclists in and around the Epping Forest area of Epping Forest district. 

For many years repeated requests have been made for a crossing at Honey Lane to no avail and recently there has been a double fatal Horse accident plus cycling accidents in the near vacinity.

There have been recent traffic schemes such as Red lines delivered and expired at significant cost upond private land owners request and we the undersigned wish to petition the council to stop focusing on private requests and look towards making the roads safer to use in and around the forest rather than support income generation schemes like car parking charges.


We need an overall assesment and delivery of suitable traffic schemes that enable safe use of the roads around the forest.
