Issue Summary

Safety at pedestrian crossing on A4 at Manton

 

Latest Update

30/03/2017 14:31:54 Wiltshire Councils Road Safety Team have been contacted. They have made a site visit to this crossing to see the situation with traffic, pedestrians and the crossing itself. They have made a number of recommendations about tidying up the crossing and making it more obvious to approaching drivers. They have also offered to work with Preshute School on road safety training for pupils and parents. I have contacted local police. They have agreed to visit this location and make observations. Their presence will hopefully make drivers slow down and stop for the red light. Police have also offered to contact drivers jumping the red light if full registration numbers can be obtained. Police can be contacted with these registration numbers on 101. Wiltshire Councils Cabinet member for Highways is also looking at this issue and a number of improvements to the crossing have been discussed to make it more obvious to approaching drivers based on Road Safetys recommendations. Where those changes need additional funding, this can be considered at the next Marlborough Community Area Transport Group meeting on 22/06/17


16/03/2017 11:39:26 Details about this situation have been sent to Wiltshire Councils Road Safety Manager for further input.


14/03/2017 11:02:05 There have been six issues reported in the last week covering this subject. Details have been passed to the local Highways engineer for input and suggested solutions. Details can be passed on as they come in.

Issue

A4 pedestrian crossing just before the Manton turning. We use the crossing at least twice daily and regularly see cars drive straight through a red light when we are about to cross. This is our route to our local Primary School. The railings alongside have also been damaged by a vehicle and are no longer fit for purpose or safety. They still havent been replaced and the damage must be around a year ago now.
