Community calls for safer crossing on Cranbrook Road

 

Parents from Westbury Park, Bishopston and Redland came with their children, placards and more than a few cuddly animals to highlight the danger of crossing Cranbrook Road.

More than 300 people have signed a petition asking for Bristol City Council to put in a zebra crossing along the upper stretch of this long, busy road. The council’s policy is to prioritise locations "with the worst road accident history" for new crossings. As two children have been hit by cars on this road in the past year, campaigners want a crossing before further accidents occur.
