Reduce the size of buses down Queens Road

This petition had 49 supporters

Since the New Year residents of Hersham have experienced the introduction of overly large and heavy buses between West Car Lane Roundabout and Waterman's Pub Roundabout. This has been causing hazards to many motorists as the buses are too large to safely negotiate the narrow road and sharp turns along this stretch of their route, meaning they are swinging onto the other side of the road causing motorists to take evasive action in order to prevent an accident. On top of this danger to the motorists, the buses create turbulence and large vibrations as they pass houses to the extent that pictures have been falling from the walls and the buildings are beginning to show new cracks in the paintwork and masonry, which in the long-term will cause major damage to the buildings structure.  The size of bus does not reflect the number of passengers seen using the service, normally there a only a hand full of people on it.  This problem is only going to escalate when in September the 515 bus service will also be using this route.
