Improve road safety near Manchester Road Park

Recently the lane leading to Manchester Road Park has been re-surfaced. This is a common route to the park for many families with small children and people with dogs.  Whilst we are all pleased that the lane is now easier underfoot, there is a downside. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of vehicles using this as a cut through, at high speed. It is only going to be a matter of time before a tragedy happens and someone is seriously hurt. The lane is unadopted and residents would like the council to adopt the road so that further traffic calming facilities can be deployed. Currently, it is unadopted and any injuries or accidents would fall outside the councils responsibility.

Please sign to urge the Council to adopt the lane and make it safer for our community and the lives of people using it.
