PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ON THE BRIDGEMost local shoppers will have seen vehicles mounting the pavement at the junction of Rainhill Road with Warrington Road. Indeed the pavement was badly broken up recently probably caused by a heavy goods vehicle. We have had the pavement repaired and installed these posts which are supposed to stop any attempt to mount the pavement to get past standing traffic trying to turn right at the lights. Several residents have reported near-misses here, one included a mother and pram with baby inside.
Hopefully this deterrent will improve safety around the village centre. Further suggestions to improve safety are always welcome..!!
