A New Zebra Crossing in Tattershall on High Street

A New Zebra Crossing in Tattershall on High Street

A zebra crossing is required on High Street between Barnes Willis Academy and Holy Trinity Primary School to give the residents of Tattershall somewhere safe to cross this very busy road.

Why is this important?

There is nowhere safe to cross the road in Tattershall. There is a steady flow of traffic and not everyone slows down when they reach the village. Children, Elderly and other members of the community often have to negotiate their way across traffic just to do simple daily things like going to school or going to the shops. I am proposing a Zebra crossing this has several benefits. Our children, our elderly and ourselves will have somewhere safe to cross the road. Traffic around the schools will slow down cutting out the risk of any serious incidents. Because High Street is a major route for a vast number of trucks and farming vehicles with a zebra crossing this will still allow a steady flow of traffic and will only slow down when the crossing is used.

I personally don't want to wait for a serious accident or even a casualty before anything is done about this.

How it will be delivered

I will deliver the petition on the 3rd of October at the Tattershall Parish Council Meeting.
