CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

I live on Frome Road Trowbridge between Pitman Avenue and Manor Road and walk my children to the Grove School every morning. This involves crossing Manor Road in order to get to the traffic light crossing for College Road. Manor Road is a fatality waiting to happen and urgently requires some sort of electric traffic signs advising drivers travelling either way on Frome Road that school children are crossing. This road has to be crossed by parents and children from at least six schools and it is extremely dangerous. Me and my two girls were nearly run over yet again this morning by a driver and this is something I see on a daily basis. I am not exaggerating this at all and it needs immediate action.
