We have asked the Council to provide a pedestrian crossing at this busy junction at the St Leonards Street end of Bernard Terrace. They have included it in this year's Roads Capital Investment Programme 2017/18 projects, which are decided on by voting from local residents.
We think this is a very important project. We have been asking for better provision for pedestrians here for years, as it is used by lots of people including children from Preston Street Primary School, and the Scoosh after school club. Now, with the opening of two new student residences nearby the number of pedestrians crossing here has increased again.
You can see the details in this document.
Please vote for this project. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8FCG2MY . If you score this project at 5 and all the others at 1 then we might stand a chance of getting our crossing.
