St Paul's Road is a major route to primary schools including Dunalley School and Gardners Lane, for students travelling to Hardwick campus and Francis Close Hall, and for people walking to St Paul's Medical Centre and into the lower High Street.
Young families, elderly people, those with limited mobility and sight, all live in the area. They deserve safe crossings and investment into active travel options for which road surveys have already been carried out and funding found.
Motorists frequently speed through St Paul's ward, and it's a significant ratrun that sees a lot of continual traffic. It feels like it's only a matter of time before someone's badly hurt or even killed.
A zebra crossing at the end of Folly Lane would also help to deter motorists from turning while people are crossing - it's a blind corner that also needs investment to ensure pedestrians can cross safely without having to take a chance between oncoming vehicles.
Crossings would keep people safe while also deterring speeding drivings. It is a matter of urgent importance that safe crossings are installed.
