Road too busy for new crossing

I AM writing about my concerns over the proposed ‘toucan crossing’ on Annesley Road, Hucknall, opposite the Tesco Express store and sited next to the bus stop.

Myself and other parents are concerned that this is a dangerous place to install it.

There is a crossing about 40-to-50 yards further down Annesley Road that would be a more suitable place — and cheaper.

This would be a lot safer because there aren’t too many junctions nearby (for example, Victoria Street, Coronation Road, those coming over Wighay Bridge, the entrance and exit to Tesco Express, the Moda restaurant, St Mary’s Way and Washdyke Lane).

Where they want to install the crossing, it is far too busy at that part of the road.
