I live in Buxton , Derbyshire. I live with a physical disability. I am very independent and will go to and from places regularly. I live very near our local Morrisons supermarket in Buxton Derbyshire. I currently feel unsafe to cross over the road safely on the main road due to the junctions and the oncoming traffic, this can be trucks and cars.

The nearest crossing is at the other end of road which you have to cross the road to get too due to the pavement being closed and it has been closed for a very long time. 

At times it has taken me and other people i know 10 minutes plus to cross the road safely. It can take a while for people to let me cross the road , but cars speed around the corner causing me to become a alarmed and feel very unsafe. I have staff who will support me when going out to the shops - but i want to maintain my independence and this is being hindered greatly by this ongoing traffic issues.

The road has had an increase in traffic recently - and is only going to get worse with more housing being built all around the area, this will also increase the number of pedestrians having to use this road. Many school children use this road, to go to school. 

I have spoken to local councils and the local mp. And local newspapers. I have been passed from pillar to post and it is getting increasingly more frustrating. I have been told that because there has been no accident there they do not feel that a crossing is needed. But surely being proactive than reactive - and working to stop a issue arising would be more beneficial for the residents of Buxton.

I am not asking for a crossing that is button operated but asking for a crossing zebra crossing to put in further down the road - Bakewell road . This could help ease any issues or problems arising that could potentially happen even death. 

I have spoke to a wide number of residents of Buxton who have all felt the same regarding this area being unsafe at this junction who have all voiced the same concerns as myself.

I feel this crossing and petition would benefit a huge number of residents in the town of Buxton - even stopping the potential accident of a pedestrian.
