Mulgrave Road JUNCTION WITH bridge road and worcester road – PROPOSED Changes to zebra crossing
Further to our formal consultation Notice dated 24 January 2019 regarding a zebra crossing in Mulgrave Road, I am writing to inform about changes to the length of the zig-zag markings of the crossing.
A safety audit has been carried out on the proposed zebra crossing. The safety auditors have expressed concern about injudicious loading activity on the eastern approach to the crossing that could adversely affect the inter-visibility.
Auditors have stated the following on the extent of zig-zag marking on the east approach:
‘’The zig-zag lines, however, are short and have only four strokes. This may permit loading activity to take place close to the crossing and adversely affect inter-visibility. Therefore, Inadequate inter-visibility may make it more difficult for pedestrians to safely assert precedence to cross’’
In response to the concern raised by auditors, we are proposing to extend the zig-zag markings on the eastern approach by additional four strokes as shown on the attached plan. The construction of the crossing is programmed to start at the end of April 2019. If you would like to make any comments or observations regarding the proposed changes, please email us the before the end of 22nd of March 2018.
