New access road - alternative to Major Draper Street
This petition requests that Berkeley homes identify an appropriate alternative access road or consider changing work schedules such that Arsenal Way can be reopened
During peak hours the street looks like a busy high street rather than the quiet street it was before the closure.
The very large numbers of pedestrians (the entire Berkeley complex as well as all of the estates along the river) means that inconsiderate behaviour of a low proportion of that large number results in residents along the Street being woken up multiple times each night.
Although the Estate Manager has agreed to intensify security presence anything less than a constant presence would not alleviate the problem. Nor does contacting the concierge solve the issue of being disturbed many times a night.
Another outcome of the reduced access is that drivers spend c.20mins in rush hour getting around the Plumstead Roundabout and back to the lights outside the gates.
