Burton Road Botch up!

Rob Mackle and I at the construction of the island in April 2009

After eight months of campaigning by myself and local campaigner Rob Mackle, the Highways department have finally admitted that the pedestrian safety issue had not been solved by the construction of the island, outside of the Old House at Home pub, Burton Road, in Spring 2009.
The Highways department have contacted me to inform me they are actively looking at installing a new zebra crossing or pedestrian island further up the road.
Rob Mackle and I had recieved a number of complaints from local residents, it was clear the new island was dangerous and completely ineffective at improving road safety.
Simply put, the island needs to be removed and a proper pedestrian crossing installed, possibly just yards down the road. Public safety should be worth the money, especially since we have been campaigning for this for many months and several accidents have already happened.
