On the 26.11.13 my Brother John Averill was tragicaly killed on Blaydon Bank in Gateshead,Tyne & Wear(Ne21).We do not want another family to have to suffer the heartache and pain that we are feeling right now,and I strongly believe that something needs to be done to make Blaydon Bank a safer road.Residents have tried for years,to put forward their concerns regarding a particular stretch of the Road,which has amounted to nothing so far.Now,as a family member of someone who has lost their life on this dangerous Road,I aim to fight to have changes made,so that no one else has to go through what our family are going through.The road where John was killed is narrow,due to parked cars and vans to one side of the road as there are houses all the way down the bank,and parking in the area for residents is very limited,so alot park on the main road.The road is also a bus route,with the bus stops almost opposite each other,which again is a great concern safety wise.The particular stretch of the bank is called Zion terrace.The bottom end houses have large front gardens which have walls around 4 foot high which back onto the main road.Putting driveways into these gardens would be a big help,and would lessen the amount of park cars to the main road.The road would also benefit from double yellow lines,from the bus stops up over.There has been many accidents on this road over the years,something has got to be done.My brother may have still been here if changes were made to this road a long time ago.We can not bring John back,but we can fight to make changes so that no other family has to suffer.I have various pics of the road which shows how bad it can be,cars overtaking stationary vehicles meaning they have to travel down the middle of the busy road to get past,while the oncoming trafiic is also trying to get past.This road is a death trap.Please do something about it.Heartbroken little sis of John Averill 16.06.77-26.11.13
