OLDLAND - West Street, Proposed new zebra crossing & existing bus stop relocation - Oldland Common ward

Someone filling in a questionnaire

Background

A continuing history of injury accidents involving pedestrians at this junction is raising concern.  Pedestrian movements here are generated by St Anne's Primary and Pre-school,  Sir Bernard Lovell Secondary School, the bus stops, Oldland Surgery and the shops in the High Street. 

A pedestrian count recorded 322 pedestrians crossing at this location during a 12 hour (7am to 7pm) period, with 72 pedestrians during the morning school drop-off period and 94 during the afternoon school collection period.

During the last 3 years there have been 3 accidents involving injury to pedestrians crossing West Street close to its junction with the A4175 High Street and Barry Road.

Purpose of the Scheme

The purpose of the scheme is to reduce pedestrian injury accidents by constructing a zebra crossing on West Street in place of the existing uncontrolled crossing point.

Proposed Scheme

The proposed scheme, shown in plan T301-285-02, is to replace the existing uncontrolled crossing point with a new zebra crossing on West Street north of its junction with the A4175 (High Street and Barry Road) Oldland. 

The existing north bound bus stop on West Street would need to be relocated some 50m south into Barry Road to accommodate the new zebra crossing.
