Get Area Board Issue
Pedestrian safety at crossing on A4 at Manton
Poor visibility and high speed of vehicles at pedestrian crossing on A4. This crossing is near Manton village and linked the village and Barton Park residential development. The crossing is used by school children and often cars dont see the red light and have to slam on their brakes this includes HGVs which obviously have a greater braking distance. I have also witnessed vehicles going through this red light- very dangerous The speed limit of 40mph also seems too fast considering you are near a Primary School and but up residential area.

Who is Affected

What has been done so far
As a parent at the school I have expressed my concerns to them. I believe the school have approached the council regards this issue but nothing has been actioned.
What would resolve issue
Reduced speed limit reduce speed limit at a greater distance from crossing. Cut back tree coverage to improve usability of crossing. Install flashing warning signs that operate during school run hours.
