Road Safety Romsey
Act now before its too late! The busy Braishfield Road cuts our community in half. The road has a 40mph speed limit and no crossing points. We are afraid that someone will be seriously injured or killed crossing this road. We have collected testimonials from many members of our community, including:
- a young woman in a wheelchair, who cannot get to the shops because it is not safe for her to cross the road without a crossing point.
- older residents afraid to cross the road to reach the bus-stop on the other side.
- parents and young children being unable to cross the road, unless a kind motorist stops their car and forces the traffic to stop so that they can cross.
- parents having to drive their older children to school, because of the dangers of crossing the road unaccompanied.
We are calling for the following immediate improvements to the road:
i) a reduction in the speed limit from 40mph to 30mph.
ii) a crossing point to be installed at the junction with School Road.
