On the 4th July 2012 a Wincobank resident on her way to work at Meadowhall was struck by a speeding car on Tyler Street. The driver lost control, crossed the carriageway, mounted the kerb and knocked the pedestrian down the railway embankment. It took the emergency services 30 minutes to get her back up the banking. We are petitioning the council for further road safety improvements along Tyler Street and Barrow Road. These should include speed reduction measures, upgrading the double yellow lines to double red lines; barriers to stop vehicles mounting the pavement in the vicinity of the transport interchange entrance; fencing along the railway embankment; zebra crossing on Barrow Road at the junction with Tyler Street; changes in the sequencing of the traffic lights to allow pedestrians time to cross safely. Since Meadowhall was opened over 20 years ago Wincobank residents have had to negotiate very difficult conditions getting to and from the Centre. This must change.
