Blacksole Bridge: Obvious in 2004

Canterbury City Council, Talmead Development Brief, October 2004, says:

Margate Road bordering the site to the north poses a particular danger to pedestrians from vehicular traffic due to the blind corner with no pavements. The road is particularly hazardous for pedestrians crossing Blacksole Bridge to the North East of the site.  Blacksole Bridge does not have pavements but is the only means of pedestrian access over the railway line from the site to Herne Bay and local facilities and is currently well used by Broomfield residents via the Thanet Way underpass.

It was clear enough in 2004. This problem was visible from a long way off, but CCC refused to see it.
