Backing resident’s demand for crossing

Friday, December 12, 2008

Heeley MP Meg Munn and Labour councillor Gary Weatherall back residents demands for a pedestrian crossing at the junction of Gleadless Road and Blackstock Road.  A petition of over 800 names, supported by the Gleadless Valley Community Forum, call for the existing underpass at Newfield Green shops to be filled in and a proper pedestrian crossing installed.


Unfortunately, local Liberal Democrat councillor Denise Reaney with her Liberal Democratic councillor colleagues on the Planning Board refused this positive proposal to help ensure the safety of residents.


Meg Munn said:


“I am extremely disappointed by the Planning Board’s decision not to make this junction safer. It is a treacherous junction that requires action to lesson the risk of future fatal tragedies.


Over 800 residents signed the petition for a crossing and the wishes of the community have been ignored. So much for the Liberal Democrat’s saying they wanted give people more of a say in their local area.”


Gleadless Valley Councillor, Gary Weatherall, said:


“The Lib Dems must listen to this concern from the community and act. Worryingly, people are increasingly crossing this busy road because they think it will be safer than using the underpass. If this continues then an accident will happen.


It’s also affecting local business, and attendance at community events, because some people are staying in rather than risking the road or underpass.”
