Petition to request a Pedestrian Crossing on Barnard Road, Galleywood

We the undersigned would like Essex County Council to consider the installation of a pedestrian crossing adjacent to the two schools on Barnard Road, Galleywood.

Barnard Road is a busy road especially at times when the children are being dropped off or picked from the schools.  The road is a busy bus route and in addition there are regular Heavy Good Vehicles supplying the local supermarket.

Although there are signs and flashing lights warning of children crossing this does little to reduce the speed of some drivers.

Until fairly recently there were crossing patrols in place to improve the safety of crossing this road.   These have not been replaced and the situation now requires drivers to proceed past the school with caution, but this is not always the case. 

Please therefore can you provide a safe way of allowing our children to cross this busy road?
