Following public outcry andover 2800 signatures on the Lib Dem petition for a safe crossing on Village Way the Council have agreed to consider installing a refuge. This is a wonderful testament to local people that came together to petition for this change.
This proposal is a good start and local people will welcome the consultation on a safe crossing point. However, will need to wait for the detailed plans to see whether the refuge will provide a satisfactory safe crossing for local people and does in fact slow the traffic down.
Some local people have already expressed concern that a proper crossing is not being installed. The following video helpfully explains what options the Council has.
