Higham Lane Road Crossing/Crossing Guard Required
A lollipop person was utilised formerly on Higham Lane, Nuneaton (near the One stop and Coronation Walk) road section until, unfortunately, they died and were not replaced. As a parent who wishes to exercise and encourage my children to walk to Milby Primary School (as do others for ages 4-11) crossing at the Onestop at peak times is a nightmare and a potential hazard due to traffic. Sometimes 5 minutes is required or more and I have to 'push' my way out manually - very dangerous. Especially as I have recently had a major head injury (required 6 weeks in hospital and left me with one eye injury), hence, in my opinion and indeed many others' opinion, a crossing is required. Although no one has died or been seriously injured to my knowledge - does it have to be the case that someone is before anything is done? If you think your child could walk on their own to school (i.e. old enough to do so) in a safe manner, due to a crossing/Crossing Guard being actioned by the council then please enter your name on the petition. Therefore less worry to yourself of your child being injured and ensuring healthy exercise before school – especially children bound for Higham Lane School from St Nicholas Park (Ages 11-16)? Also, guarding the elderly in our area, encouraging them to cross and walk the road safely too, once a crossing has been erected. I need your help to assist me to take this forward to the Weddington Community Forum being held on 3rd November. Thank you for reading this.
