Watch call for Cadley Causeway crossing at ‘accident blackspot’

Posted on - 23rd August, 2016 - 12:00pm | Author - | Posted in - Cadley, Fulwood, Preston News, Roads, Transport


Calls for a new pedestrian crossing on a road branded ‘dangerous’ have been stepped up.

Cadley Causeway has seen a number of serious accidents in recent years, including a 17-year-old boy being injured while riding his bike.

Councillor for the ward John Potter has released a video urging Prestonians to sign the call for a safer road in Fulwood.

He said: “Anyone who has been in the area knows we have been trying to get a pedestrian crossing on this street for a long, long, time.

“Three schools, two lots of sheltered accommodation, a church, a park and bus stops on one of the main routes to the hospital.

“We have the research now that say this road isn’t safe enough. We want to do something about it.”

In August last year Lancashire County Council said they were considering a crossing on the road during the 2016-2017 financial year. However, this funding has not been forthcoming and the crossing is now more likely by 2018.

The petition, on the county council website, calls for the council to commit to funding the crossing.
