Hilton Lane junction petition received
Over 400 local people have signed the petition, which Cllr D’Albert will now present to the Council in his role as Area Board Chair.
This junction is a major crossing for lots of people including pupils at a number of local schools, and those wishing to access the shops on the corner. Simply standing watching the traffic flow for a minute will show how many cars use it too. It is only a matter of time before somebody is seriously injured or worse.
As seems so often the case with local issues, the Lib Dems are the only party taking things seriously, and taking forward the interests of local people. This petition is not the end, and our campaign for increased safety features will continue.
The photo above shows me with local residents at the junction, receiving their petition on behalf of St Mary’s Liberal Democrats.
