Former councillor Karen fights on with Brook Street roundabout signage campaign

August 18, 2011 7:39 AM

Karen Chilvers, former Lib Dem councillor for Brentwood West, is keeping her promise to local people and fighting on for a review of the signage on the Brook Street roundabout.


Karen started the campaign in the winter of 2010 when a number of residents, including driving instructors and a resident who had a serious accident there, raised concerns about the signage from the south into Brentwood, passing under the M25. A site visit with the Route Management team saw them agreeing that the signage did not give enough room for motorists to move over and should be subject to a formal review. Karen Chilvers


Karen said: "I fought for a formal site visit and was delighted when the route manager agreed. He actually saw the problem straight away and asked me to pull together a dossier of supporting evidence and provide this when the M25 widening was finished so he could ask for a review.

"I have around 30 individually written letters and emails from residents, which carries more weight than just names on a petition, all saying essentially the same thing. I have now sent those off to him asking for action."


"Although I may not be a councillor now, many people put their trust in me to fight for this on their behalf and I am happy to see it through, taking direct and meaningful action for them."
