Issue Summary

Dangerous crossing on Bradford Road Atworth

 

Latest Update

CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

There is a serious injury risk to pedestrians crossing Bradford Road at its junction with Bath Road when crossing from the western side due to there being no visibility of traffic approaching from the south. This is particularly difficult when the noise from traffic on Bath Road prevents the sound being heard of vehicles approaching the junction from along Bradford Road. Vehicles often approach this junction too fast.
