With regard to the recent tragic accident on Long Furlong, what is needed on the road is the national speed limit at the junction with the A24 being changed to 50 miles per hour maximum, up to the current 40 miles per hour section towards the A27 flyover/roundabout.
It needs the addition of signage showing a complete ban on overtaking on the sections not marked by double white lines, or extending the double white lines, whichever is cost-effective.
Lastly, there is a need to emphasise to motorists ‘we’ll be watching you’ with camera signs and by flash speed and overtaking checks by traffic officers.
I can understand the A24 has tight bends and so needs to have a 50 miles per hour limit, but could never understand such a narrow road as Long Furlong having any part suited to the national speed limit.
