Alex Brown started this petition to chelmsford council

My 4 year old has been attending pre-school and now primary school on Maltese Road.

Currently there is no safe place to cross Rainsford Road in between Gibsons corner shop and the busy 5 lane junction at Rainsford Lane.    This is a long stretch of road to not have any safe crossing, especially as Maltese Road primary is now located in-between.

I am finding it impossible to get across Rainsford Road safely with my 4 year old on foot and toddler in a buggy as cars rarely stop at the 'pedestrian refuge'. Sometimes I will get half way across and then be stuck in the middle with the kids feeling really vulnerable with fast traffic thundering past.

As Maltese Road primary is becoming more well established, this 'refuge' is becoming more busy and this morning there was no room for all parents and children to stand safely on it.  

This is why it is imperative that the council install a Zebra crossing here before a child is injured.  It is an accident waiting to happen.

I had campaigned previously but the councils response was that not enough accidents had happened there yet!  

We need a safe crossing for all...this affects everybody in the community not just children so please sign.
