There is a safety issue for pedestrians crossing Malmesbury road to enter John Coles Park. There safety issue results from- There is no controlled crossing for the large residential area to the West of John Coles park over Malmesbury Road- The existing island crossing is between two blind corners and does not offer sufficient protection for crossing pedestrians to watch for traffic and for pedestrians waiting to cross often too many people waiting at the island- There is no other traffic calming or speed limit enforcement on the road around the popular crossing points resulting in often excessive speed while at 30mph it still remains unsafe- I have witnessed several near misses at this location and am confident other people will have also.The location of the issue is Malmesbury Road between the junctions of Deansway and Greenway Avenue where opposite the three entry points to the park.I highly recommend a Pelican crossing or at least Zebra with traffic calming measures is introduced to avoid future serious accidents.
