Install a pedestrian crossing on Park road/Derbyshire lane junction

This petition had 1,638 supporters

There is currently no safe way to cross any of the 4 roads at the Park Road/Derbyshire lane junction. Pedestrians are risking life and limb crossing these heavily trafficked roads as there is not enough time in between each light sequence to cross safely. The crossing on Park road is especially dangerous as there is a blind spot for both pedestrians and drivers when turning left from Derbyshire lane on to Park road towards Trafford Park. This is a very busy junction and regularly used by families with small children as they make their way to one of the 4 Primary school/Day nurseries or 2 parks in the vicinity. I use this junction 4 times a day during rush hour with my 2 children one of which is in a pram, and I often get caught in the middle of road and have to weave between moving traffic, it is truly terrifying. Also there are many drivers coming from the 40mph stretch in Trafford park flouting the 30 MPH speed limit, which adds to the pressure of getting across fast. The current set up is extremely dangerous and its a miracle no one has been killed. Instead of waiting for a fatality to justify taking action, we the signed names on this petition urge you to prevent one and install a Pedestrian crossing to keep us safe
