ePetition details

Hen Lane crossing

We the undersigned petition the Council to cut back the trees on the approach to the junction and crossing, renew the road markings in the area around the junction and crossing, provide extra signage such as road ‘slow’ signs or other appropriate prompts. Install bollards on the corner of Hen Lane and Briscoe Road to prevent vehicles parking and obscuring both the junction and the crossing. Measure the volume and speed of traffic at this location for a period of no less than two weeks and not during school holidays and undertake investigations into replacing the Zebra crossing to a signalled Toucan crossing.

We, the residents of Hen Lane and surrounding area, have significant concerns regarding speeding traffic, unclear signage and poor visibility at the junction of Briscoe Road and Hen Lane, which also impacts the adjacent zebra crossing, causing safety issues for pedestrians.

This Zebra crossing is used by children going to John Shelton Primary school and President Kennedy Secondary school, and there have been several near misses where children have narrowly avoided being hit by vehicles.

This ePetition runs from 18/11/2022 to 20/01/2023.
