Riverside zebra crossing installed after 10 year campaign

 

Cllr Adam Smith and Cllr Andrew Jenner try out the new crossing on Ray Mead Road
Families and visitors to the riverside have been provided with a safer way to cross Ray Mead Road since the installation of a new zebra crossing.

 

Campaigners had been calling for it for nearly 10 years, during which time a number of pedestrians were knocked down while trying to cross the road.

Jenner's Cafe owner and Royal Borough councillor Andrew Jenner (Con, Riverside) submitted petitions containing hundreds of signatures to the council calling for action.

He thanked fellow ward councillors Adam Smith (Con, Riverside) and Simon Dudley (Con, Riverside) for their help.

Work began to install the crossing near the Riverside Gardens park on Monday, November 7 and took less than two weeks to complete.

It is thought to have cost about £17,000.
