Pedestrian safety at crossing on A4 at Manton
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.

Who is Affected
Every person crossing the A4 from Barton Park to get to Manton
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
