Jen Gick started this petition to Hampshire County Council

The Rooksdown side of the pedestrian bridge over the A339 at the Roman Road roundabout is pitch black at night. You cannot see the stairs, the ramp or even someone standing directly beside you. Hampshire council have said the crime rates arent high enough to put a light there. The rooksdown side is blocked by the large trees of the Spinney so the stairs and ramps cant be seen by the houses nearby or any cars on the road. I dont think we should have to wait for someone to be attacked there before a light is installed. We can prevent a possibly horrible crime from taking place by just installing one light.

People have been running across the busy road instead of taking the pedestrian bridge because it doesn't feel safe. The seasons are changing, it will soon be dark starting at 3pm, students will have to cross this potentially dangerous bridge 5 times a week to get home from school. Just putting a light there will make a huge difference to everyone who uses the bridge or even knows someone who does. Something simple like this could literally save someones life. 

Please sign so we can make our community a better, safer place to live for all of us.
