More details from petition creator

The number of people walking up to the Downs via Longdown Lane South increased significantly during the pandemic. This activity is expected to continue after “lockdown” eases as people appreciate the benefits of outdoor activity accessed on foot rather than car. However, people coming up from the North side of College Road, or from Longdown Lane North face two problems crossing over to Longdown Lane South:

1. There is no pedestrian phase for the lights. The high level of traffic at this crossing makes pedestrian crossing dangerous. 2. There is no dropped kerb at the crossing. This makes the crossing extremely difficult for those with wheelchairs or child-buggies. There is also no dropped kerb further down College Road towards the mini-roundabout with Alexandra Road.

Hence we request SCC to: (a) instal a pedestrian phase at these lights together with a suitable dropped kerb structure to facilitate crossing by wheelchair and child-buggy users, (b) consider the merits of further dropped kerbs along College Road such as at the mini-roundabout with Alexandra Road.
