Kimberley Patton started this petition to County Durham Council

I am creating this petition to request the council make Pelton Fell Road that runs from Chester-le-Street to Pelton Fell and Blue House Bank safer for pedestrians. The road currently has pavements that only exist on one side of the road then stop and continue on the opposite side of the road. This occurance happens twice, which means pedestrians need to cross this road twice to get from one end to the other.

The road is a 40 mph road with numerous bends within a short distance of one another, making the timing and visability harder for  pedestrians to judge when to cross safely.

As a pedestrian who uses this road frequently with a pram and a child to cross with makes me feel scared, anxious and nervous to cross the road as drivers don't abide by the speed limit. The bends of the road dont allow me to identify the best time to cross safely at times with my children.

Please can you help and sign this petition so that we can help make this road a safer place for pedestrians to cross.
