More details from petition creator

Please install pedestrian countdown lights at this busy crossing from Horsell into Woking (near the Lightbox/WWF) so that users know how long they have to cross safely. I have witnessed many near accidents involving cars and crossings at this part of the ring-road around the town, where pedestrians have to cross five lanes of traffic in a 40-mph zone. Some people are unaware that once the lights change they have only seconds to cross. Elderly people, in particular, are at risk; I saw one elderly woman missed by inches by a car travelling at high speed.
