Roe Lane zebra crossing plan scrapped

Thank you to all the residents of the Roe Lane / Hesketh Drive area who replied to our local survey.

A clear majority of residents were firmly against putting a zebra crossing on Roe Lane at the site identified by the council between Hesketh Drive and Wennington Road.

We agree with the majority who stressed that the position would have been seriously dangerous. A small number of residents suggested moving the proposed crossing to a different position, but this would have involved moving a bus stop and for technical reasons that was not possible.

Faced with our protests and the important survey results, the council gave in totally and the scheme has now been officially abandoned. £30,000 of taxpayers money would have been spent on this dangerous project.
