Install a zebra crossing on The Green, Writtle.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now and install a zebra Crossing on The Green, Writtle.

Increased traffic using The Green and the speed at which some of it is travelling, means that it is increasingly difficult for villagers to cross the road safely, particularly the most vulnerable: young children, the elderly and disabled.

The current traffic islands are too slim to accommodate pushchairs, wheelchairs and bicycles and do not provide a safe crossing point in our village.
