Safety on our roads

image1-5

I was delighted to submit to Council a petition of some 4,404 names calling for safety improvements to a junction near a secondary school. This junction has seen many accidents, cars turned over, speeding, and is used by thousands of school children.

Our first priority should be to ensure the safety of our children and residents, and the voice of residents should not be ignored. Many people have said how dangerous this junction is, how fast cars drive down it and how a life is waiting to be lost. I hope that residents will be heard before it is too late.

With students, residents and road users I call on the council to make the necessary funding available to make this junction safe for all users.
