Having safe pedestrian crossings installed on Easington Road in Hartlepool is very important, this road is a dual carriageway both directions.

Easington Road is one of the main road links into and out of Hartlepool, Easington Road is also a residential area within Hartlepool which consists of family homes on both sides of the road, there is also a family friendly pub & restraunt based on Easington road the Merry Go Round owned by Fayre & Square which also consists of a wacky warehouse play area for young children and there is also the Terrotorial army centre based on this road which also hosts the base for the Armed Forces Cadets.

It is clear that children live on this road, visit the facilities in this area including the TA Centre for the army cadets.

This road is dangerous to cross and bears a speed limit of 40mph This does not stop drivers from using it as a speed track.

I have heard of various near miss accidents on this road Pedestrian Vs Vehicle.

This road is a main route from one area of town to another for pedestrians accessing social facilities,schools,nurseries,supermarkets,the hospital etc.

The council have said they do not have the funding to place a pedestrian crossing on both ends of easington road (west view roundabout and powlett road roundabout) although they will have the funds sometime during the 2015/2016 financial year to install 1 crossing on the dual carriageway close to the west view roundabout.

We need to bring the safety of ourselves, our children and our relatives to the attention of the council and demand they put safety first at all times.


 

Please support us in the fight to make this road safer for all pedestrians that use this road for whatever reason.
