Issue

The traffic lights at the crossing on the A4 between Barton Park and Manton just outside Marlborough are not being noticed by drivers. This is a place where many people cross from Barton Park to get to Preshute Primary school in Manton. Yesterday there was a near miss when a mother and her daughter were crossing abd a car went through while the lights were red. I myself have had to pull my children back when they were crossing on a green man as cars simply have not stopped. This crossing is used by many parents to get their young children to school it is unacceptable that we should have to be put in danger every day.

What has been done so far

This issue has been raised with yourselves

What would resolve issue

We need a flashing school sign that operates just before school starts at 8.45 and again at 3.00 when school finishes. Drivers are not aware that the traffic lights are coming up there are not signs to warn them and there are many large trees around the traffic lights that cover them up.

Who needs to come together

Wiltshire council and Preshute Primary school
