Dangerous crossing opposite Peter Gladwin School
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to install a pedestrian crossing on Drove Road/Foredown Road opposite Peter Gladwin School in Portslade. This is an extremely busy road with three schools; Peter Gladwin School, Hill Park Lower school and Hill Park Upper school. At drop off and pick up times it is extremely dangerous for children crossing the road as there is no pedestrian crossing in place and numerous cars obstructing the view of oncoming traffic, which is not required to give way to children crossing. Hill Park Lower school is a special needs school and many children crossing at this point have significant additional needs. A pedestrian crossing would make it much safer for everyone to get to school.
We have contacted the council a number of times regarding this issue but have been told that there are no funds left for this financial year and all that can be offered are some yellow cones to put outside the school. This is a completely inadequate response as our children’s safety is at risk! Please sign and share widely to let the local authority know the strength of feeling on this issue.
