Kent County Council is today (Monday) launching a consultation into plans for a toucan crossing on Burnham Road in Dartford.
KCC has secured funding from the Local Growth Fund, allocated by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, for the £150,000 proposed scheme.
A previous consultation in February proposed a crossing outside 177-183 Burnham Road.
Feedback from residents suggested it would be better placed near 83-85, opposite Invicta Bowls Club.
It is intended to help pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road in this busy location.
Toucan crossings offer a shared pedestrian and cycle point and have traffic lights which will in turn lower the speeds of vehicles on the road.
This consultation runs until November 26.
If a decision is taken to go ahead with the scheme, KCC intend to start work in February 2018 and work should take up to a month to complete.
Road closures will be required, however KCC says it will minimise the impact with potential night working and works partially coinciding with a school holiday period.
To take part, email firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Dartford Highways Consultations, Transport Innovations, 1st Floor Invicta House, County Hall, Maidstone ME14 1XX.
