Burwell Angels Crossing
This is a Petition for a safe crossing point in Buntings Path which is the road adjacent to Burwell School, The Burwell Community Centre and the Community Library.
I'm an Ofsted Registered Childminder and also a parent myself. Living on this street now for nearly 6 yrs I've noticed every day the potential danger on this Road. Although, I do sympathise that there are lots of roads that might need improvement in Burwell and speeding is a issue everywhere, this is a road right next to the Primary School and Community Sport Centre, and even though it is not leading to the main entrance to the School, over half of the pupils and families use this entrance on a daily basis to come and go plus it's the main entrance to the Sport Centre where there are multiple daily activities 7 days a week. It is also one of the entrances to the Community Library which is used by many of our residents both young and old. The point of this is, this road should really have visible signs for the School at each end, a zebra crossing and restrictions of speeds limits in line with most areas around schools in the country which is 20mph. I witness every single day, numerous times, people speeding over the limit, parking close to the corners and restricting pedestrians views and children crossing between cars as the come and go from the amenities. I'd like to find out the ways of how this can be improved. I would appreciate your advice, possible support and of course your signature!
