Community Success for Cranham Crossing

front lane crFollowing on from a community campaign last year to install a pedestrian crossing in Front Lane, Cranham, the campaign turned into reality last month when the crossing was finally complete.

Following a number of collisions at the location near Kings Gardens, over 1,000 residents signed a petition to introduce a safe crossing point for the many school children and elderly residents who use the route going to schools, doctor’s surgery and the Cranham community centre.

Cllr Clarence Barrett (Cranham, RA) said: “The community have been totally behind this campaign and it is testimony to the marvellous collective efforts of residents, working with the Council, that the much needed crossing has become a reality.

“Front Lane is a very busy route where excessive speed has been an ongoing issue. The crossing will not only provide safe passage for residents, but will have the additional advantage of slowing traffic down along this stretch of road”.
