Issue

Unsafe pedestrian pathway on north side of Bath Road A4 Marlborough between College and traffic light zebra crossing at Manton.This section of the Bath Roads outdated footpath is now virtually unusable by pedestrians because of its very narrow width proximity to the roadside and the heavy volume of traffic. The pavement is as little as 60cm wide in places meaning HGVs pass within elbow distance. With a pram or on an assistance buggy the passage along this road can be described as dangerous. Walking in adult pairs is impossible and dangerous for unsupervised young children. When it is raining pathway users can get soaked by splashing from the vehicles. There is no concession to residents who would like to walk safely along this road into town which encourages more to use their cars for the short journey. This is not a mindset we should be encouraging in the search for a cleanersafer environment.
