Campaigners call for better safety signs on Dorset road
Posted by Ben Alexander
Campaigners are calling for the reinstatement of safety signs and other road signs along a coastal route in Dorset.
Bridport News reported that road campaigners are calling for measures such as cats eyes and white lines to be restored to the B3157 between Weymouth and Bridport.
Lynda Thomas, 64, told a pressure group meeting in Swyre that she had suffered a bad accident when driving home from work and was "lucky to be alive".
Mrs Thomas called for safety measures to be reinstalled in order to improve the road.
Eonne Sinclair, local businessman and parish councillor for Puncknowle, Swyre and West Bexington, called for direction and safety signs to be put up to let people from outside the area know about the route.
He said: "We want the cats eyes and white lines re-instated along the road and clearer signage so tourists know that they can travel along such a beautiful route in Dorset.
"The businesses along the route are losing trade because people aren't travelling along the coast road after the signs were taken down some time ago."
Last week, safety signs were erected at popular fishing spot Roswell Pits, near Ely, to help protect members of the public.
