Worthing couple campaign to reduce speed in road

WHILE many motorists in Worthing will be frustrated by the repair works to Broadwater Bridge, one couple are looking forward to the impact it will have on their street.

As a result of the works, King Edward Avenue has temporarily become a one-way street, much to the delight of residents Pam Thornton-Cecil and her husband, Jeremy Cecil.

The couple claim vehicles travel at dangerous speeds in the road and that the overuse of the road by commercial vehicles has led to cracks appearing in their home.

Over a two-week period, the couple spent hours sat in their car outside their home conducting a commercial traffic flow survey. In that time, they covered every hour between 5am and 9pm to replicate a ‘typical’ day.
