Let's get a safer crossing for Worthy Road!

Here is a message from Lynne:

I had a meeting with Fiona Mathers our County Councillor this week. The Council have money from the Barton Farm development to spend on road crossings. One of the places being considered is the Worthy Road!  Fiona needs to demonstrate that there is local demand for the crossing and also where people would like the crossing to be.

Please could you take a moment to email Fiona on fiona.mather@hants.gov.uk?

A couple of lines is enough, just saying why you would like a crossing (traffic is very fast, children crossing to primary/secondary school, dangerous for elderly people etc.) and if you have a preference where you would like the crossing to be.  Please also put your full postal address in the email.

I’ve also attached a petition with space for seven names.  Please would you consider printing it off and taking it round your neighbours?

Finally if you could forward this information by email but also to people in Abbotts Barton who aren’t on the internet or don't have email that would be great.

The Council did a count of people crossing the road earlier this year and concluded there wasn’t enough demand to justify using Council funds. The Barton Farm money is a one off opportunity to get the crossing and they are making the decisions at the moment!

Any questions please contact us!

Note: Please download the petition document for proper viewing and printing - it doesn't look the way it should when you view it through your web browser!
