I am fed up of crossing the main road next to the common as you enter Marlborough having to feel vulnerable stood in the middle whilst cars/lorries etc fly around the corner and they don't stop for you. I have seen too many times people with their dogs or pushchairs stood in the middle feeling unsafe and dogs actually shaking with fear from the heavy fast traffic flow. Something needs to be done now before someone is killed or seriously hurt. Apparently, they won't do anything about this till something like this does happen, which is shameful and wrong! My goal is to try, with your signatures and support, to get a suitable and safer crossing than the one we already have (possibly a pedestrian) with a sign to warn drivers of this ahead to try reduce their speed. Trying to enter and exit the estates/area can be difficult also. It is such a dangerous, busy and noisy road and I feel that we can all agree on a change is seriously needed. I also think, that where the steps are to the common, we could really do with something put in place for disabled residents to access. I don't want to try and push for too much because my main focus is a safer crossing and the control of speeding, but I will try and push for as much as possible with your help and voice. 

If you agree and would like this change to really happen, please sign and share. Thank you.
