Lorraine Thomas started this petition to Wigan Council and

Please sign and share this petition..For Wigan Council to instal some sort of Barriers and Lighting at the side of our Canals making it safer for our community to walk home from a night out...

Having a friend loose their little brother recently this needs to be prevented from happening time and time again..

So many people take a short cut home from Wigan town centre using the Leeds to Liverpool Canal using many access points and also from other areas that are a close walk to the Canal sides. They are unlit and extremely dangerous to any person who has been enjoying a night out as these people risk walking along side unlit slippery deep sides and can easily fall into the Canal after a night out and are unable to get out.

That’s why I’ve started this campaign calling on the Canal and River Trust and Wigan Council, to install permanent barriers around Wigan’s  canals, even if it’s just in a really busy area that’s used the most from Our Town centres and access points.

Salford city centre have lost so many students due to having no barriers near their Universities and families are still fighting today to get these Barriers in place this is a nationwide worry.

You can’t put a price on a life and this small measure could help prevent many more lives being lost in and around our community.
