More details from petition creator

In 2010 I wrote to Spelthorne Council asking for a safe pedestrian crossing to be installed at Fordbridge roundabout in Ashford. The 'Officer Report' that was published on the internet indicated the urgent need for a pedestrian crossing, endorsed by the local police.

Since this report was carried out someone was killed in an accident on the roundabout last winter.

Spelthorne advised Surrey would be in charge of making a decision.

A crossing was planned for 2012 but these plans were shelved and cancelled.

We need a crossing because:

> Fordbridge roundabout is on a school route to Laleham Primary and Matthew Arnold. Surrey does have a duty to provide a safe crossing.

>We have cars speeding at +40 miles an hour from the dual carriageways.

>It is very hard to safely cross even in daylight.

>Every roundabout that runs from Staines to Richmond (crooked billet to A316 to Richmond) has a zebra/ pelican or bridge. Our roundabout is the only one without a safe crossing.

>Your view is obstructed when crossing from the Kingston Road side to the Fordbridge Road side.

>In the dark lighting in this area is poor.

Please help me to make this stretch of road safer for our families and children.
