Add Pedestrian crossings to Bell Green Road

We the undersigned petition the Council to install a pedestrian crossing or zebra crossing along Bell Green Road. Areas of concern are where Bell Green Road meets Profit Avenue and another area is Bell Green road between the junctions of Clark Street and Armfield Road. Now Courthouse Green school is making use of their Bell Green Road entry it has become increasingly more difficult to cross Bell Green road safely. If a crossing or 2 cannot be installed then a speed reduction system may help, particularly where it is blind corners between Armfield and Clark Street. Ideally we would like a crossing system at the crossroads of Bell Green Road and Profit Avenue as well as a crossing further along Bell Green Road between Armfield Road and Clarke street junction to be a zebra crossing. This would also help local residents as well as children travelling to and from school.

Any of us that have had to cross that road have found it increasingly difficult to do. The lights do not work for pedestrians and the speeds people travel at are making it extremely unsafe to try and cross. It's impossible to teach road safely as there are never any sustained gaps in traffic it's a case of quickly across.

This would benefit residents of Bell Green, Courthouse Green and reduce traffic speed in the area.

This ePetition runs from 16/09/2020 to 11/11/2020.
