Change the crossing near Bitterne Station (Southampton) to make it safe for pedestrians & cyclists.

Change the crossing near Bitterne Station (Southampton) to make it safe for pedestrians & cyclists.

Please ensure that the planned Highways England work includes a regular combined pedestrian/cyclist phase over the dangerous junction next to Bitterne Station.

All welcome to join us there on 18th Nov: https://www.facebook.com/events/266846273945353/

Why is this important?

It takes 7 mins to cross as a pedestrian with the lights, so people take risks running across.
There's no safe cycle route, but it could be much safer with a few dropped kerbs and some paint.
It is monstrous that the proposed Highways England scheme does not take this into account.

We need a regular combined pedestrian/cyclist phase over this dangerous junction. Also, eg:
- pavement alteration for bikes by derelict hairdresser and opposite for bikes.
- crossing point is needed from station across to Athelstan Rd - over just Bitterne Rd West instead of multiple crossings.
- traffic calming needed by the concrete blocks on Bullar Rd, as the crossing is often ignored by vehicles.

Please join us on 18th Nov: https://www.facebook.com/events/266846273945353/ (or contact us via http://www.southamptoncyclingcampaign.org.uk/about-us/contact-us/ )

How it will be delivered

Hopefully to the council soon - we'll rush if Highways England publish their plans (which they are due to soon) - with a press event.
