Residents and Councillors in Nascot are demanding action for safety measures at the dangerous Courtlands Drive/Hempstead Road junction. We are backing their campaign.
When we spoke to Nascot Liberal Democrat Councillor Jeanette Aron, she said "This is by far the most controversial junction in Nascot, if not Watford. Additional traffic from the new developments is making a bad situation worse. Enough is enough. We want something done."
Mark Watkin, the Liberal Democrat County Councillor for the area, also told us, "I have pressed county officers to at least investigate what can be done to improve this junction- maybe lights, a left turn lane or a mini roundabout but this has fallen on deaf ears.
“We demand a solution to the excessive queues. Residents risk their lives crossing this junction during busy times and drivers are also taking a risk when they try to exit right from Courtlands Drive or turn right from Hempstead Road.”
We back Jeanette and Marks campaign, if you do as well, sign our petition here.
