Issue

Crossing Bradford Road east of Stone Close junction is considered dangerous by parents of school children who are walking from Park Lane to Rudloe. There is a cut-through from Park Lane to Bradford Road and children are crossing from that point across Bradford Road and then walking towards Rudloe. There is a crossing point further west on Bradford Road but its not used because one side of the road is a hedge. Perhaps this could be opened up so a footpath exists on both sides of the crossing. Its believed that the speed of traffic at this point is dangerously fast and the footpath west of Stone Close junction towards Rudloe is narrow and overgrown meaning pedestrians are forced closer to moving traffic when walking.
