The decision to close the road and pedestrian access to Llay Health Centre from the southern side of the village was taken without full community consultation.
Concerns raised by the community council about access to the health centre were not passed on to the planning authority and therefore the decision was passed without a full understanding of the facts.
Road Safety for children has not been addressed at Botany for Botany Public School students, the pre-schoolers of John Brotchie Nursery School and the babies, infants & toddlers of Hippo's Friends Childcare Centre, all of which are located on Botany Road, Botany. Bay Street is notorious!
Road Safety issues need to be addressed urgently and a safe passage provided for students, pre-schoolers, babies, infants and toddlers and their families. The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) have a Safety Around Schools Coordinator, we will be making contact to ensure these matters are being addressed seriously. Both the City of Botany Bay and the RMS need to move fast on this issue. There are many obligations both ethically and legally to our children, to local residents and visitors.
We need to make a legally safe environment. This is a matter of urgency! A joint coordinated effort is recommended before serious harm occurs.
The Heights neighborhood is known for its small-town feel close to the heart of Houston. This community has cherished its tree-lined streets and preservation of walking and biking trails. These amenities sustain relationships among neighbors, make it easy to walk, jog, and bike to local businesses, or simply exercise.
Urban density is rising and a recent investment in roadway repaving has resulted in a greater volume of commuter traffic traversing our neighborhood at alarming speeds. In 2011, a young mother and wife was killed on our neighborhood's walking trail while out for a jog because the signalized intersection at 11th Street and Heights Boulevard had not been properly managed for active pedestrian use.
Safety and mobility are a priority for our historic neighborhood. Heights residents want safe crossings for all pedestrians: fitness enthusiasts, dog walkers, parents with infants in strollers, children on bikes, senior citizens and others with mobility challenges that require greater consideration.
It is time for the City of Houston to invest in traffic management measures that provide for pedestrian, not just vehicular, movement and put the safety of our residents first.
A new school has just been built and open for session early this year, you would taught the city of los angeles would notice that and put in a pedestrian crosswalk for the safety of children going and coming out of school.
Parents have to be dodging cars in the busy mornings and afternoon dropping off and picking up their children from school. THIS BUSY INTERSECTION IS LOCATED AT WEST 21ST STREET AND ARLINGTON AVE IN THE 90018 ZIPSODE.
Crossing Anderton Road in Comox is dangerous for pedestrians particularly during peak traffic hours. Offending motorists are often seen being issued illegal passing violations during morning and afternoon commutes near and around Robb Ave where it crosses Anderton Road.
This crossing is of particular concern as it is the main route for elementary students commuting to École Robb Road Elementary.
With escalating traffic volumes it is imperative that a safe and effective pedestrian crossing system be employed.
Local Residents and Businesses are proposing a scheme to make walking round Greenwich Town Centre safer and more pleasant.
This would be achieved in part by covering over the railway cutting between Greenwich Church Street and King William Walk, for which purposes the Council must negotiate with Network Rail. The other necessary improvements require the rationalisation of existing pedestrian crossings and the lining up of these crossings with existing pedestrian-only areas.
The scheme would have beneficial repercussions on other forms of transport also and be of great practical use to resident and tourist alike.
There have been three pedestrian fatalities and many more injuries in the Lenton area over the past year due to a lack of safe places to cross the busy main roads.
Daily journeys along derby road are dangerous and people are having to gamble.
This petition has been set up to enable a safer crossing of Penkivil Street for everyone. Installation of a traffic island or pedestrian crossing by the RTA is the request.
The position requested is where one crosses Penkivil Street between Orr Street and Martins Avenue This is one section of the Green Links Project (initiated by Waverley Council).
This is where many people walking/riding to and from work or school cross Penkivil Street.
This is a continuation of our petition submitted to Brighton and Hove City Council at their Full Council meeting on 24 March 2011 - total signatures at that point were 835.
This petition is part and parcel of a campaign to persuade the council that there are compelling and justifiable grounds on which to carry out a complete review of the road layout and management in and around the Hollingdean Dip.
Anecdotal evidence shows that there have been many near misses over a number of years as vehicles race through the Dip without regard for the safety of pedestrians many of whom are school children walking to Hertford Infants School.
The residents on this campaign are of the view (clearly expressed at Full Council) that a holistic approach is essential so that current problems relating to speeding, parking on corners and double yellow lines and a dangerous bus stop configuration are dealt with and that, most essentially, priority is given to pedestrians over vehicles.
A new housing estate has been built off Exning Road, no infrastructure had been provided, the through road is currently blocked, this causes serious road safety problems for children, Mother's/Father's crossing the road to get to their various schools or simply to just cross the road to do their daily routines.
Urgent action is needed to ensure the safety of all our families, this is an accident waiting to happen we must act now before some one is hurt or even worse.
The parklands on the banks of the Cooks River provide considerable amenity to the community by way of walking paths, open playing fields, various public recreational facilities and a “natural” environmental experience. This amenity is enjoyed by all age groups and across a rage of ethnicities, interests and sporting codes.
Walking/cycle paths travel along both sides of the river. At the Illawarra Rd crossing the paths of both sides connect on the eastern side of that bridge forming one end of a loop that does not require crossing Illawarra Road. However, this is not the case where the paths reach Unwins Bridge.
To form a loop at the Unwins Bridge end pedestrians and cyclists need to cross the road twice. A set of lights enables people to cross at Tempe Station but the 2nd crossing at Bayview St, just inside Canterbury Council, is only supported by a refuge. A narrow cantilevered path is available on the South Eastern side of Unwins Bridge.
The necessity to cross heavily trafficked streets is a major impediment to casual use of the river paths. It is a significant safety issue and detracts from the usability and unity of the parklands on both sides of this reach of the Cooks River. There has been a long held desire by many residents on both sides of the river to have better pedestrian/cycle access across Unwins Bridge.
George Brown St. in Billerica is a very heavily traveled road, with many cars travelling well over the speed limit. With the Whipple Road bridge closed, traffic has increased a great deal. Our children must travel this road and attempt to cross it daily to get to and from their bus stops. Our children play in this neighborhood. This street needs sidewalks and a crosswalk to prevent tragedy from happening.
It is well documented that the cars travelling on this road do so at a rate of speed well over the posted limit. One motorcycle officer can not possibly handle the amount of speeders on this road. Many residents of this street have lost pets to accidents involving cars. It is time to make our road safe and protect our children! Three years ago, we residents met with the then Town Manager and expressed our concerns.
We requested a crosswalk and were told it would be "looked into". Three years is long enough to wait!
Residents have long pleaded for a crossing outside the post office, as cars often drive at excessive speed along this road. The authorities have cut funding for such projects, but say that if a petition campaign gathers enough signatures, it may succeed in persuading them to reconsider this specific safety measure.
Every signature brings us a step closer to changing their minds. Petition forms have been made available in local shops, but we're asking for the support of internet users too. Thanks in advance.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, has announced that 145 pedestrian crossings across London will be removed.
One of those crossings is on Lewisham Way, the removal of which will make crossing the road to St. John's station and St. John's medical centre more hazardous for pedestrians, especially older people, people in wheel chairs and parents with prams.
We are petitioning the Mayor of London to reverse this decision and keep this much used crossing.
National charity Living Streets is calling plans to reduce pedestrian crossing time in London to be stopped - amidst safety fears for pedestrians.
As part of its plans to smooth traffic flow across the capital, Transport for London (TfL) has been investigating changing signalised pedestrian crossings, including reducing pedestrian crossing time.
Living Streets is concerned about any reduction in pedestrian crossing times. Fear of traffic and the tortuous amounts of time it can take to cross some roads are real barriers to people walking more short journeys, in particular older people and those with disabilities.
We want the Mayor to put an end to initiatives that involve reducing pedestrian crossing time.
The lethal intersection of Roper Road with the Pathways Estate has been an ongoing safety issue. A pedestrian pathway on the outside of a sweeping bend, trees on the inside of the bend which restrict vision and no street lighting. Add this to a poorly constructed camber, no line markings and no speed signs from one direction and we have a recipe for ongoing disaster.
This petition is designed to finally get action from the Rural City of Murray Bridge Council to finally modify this corner to substantially improve its safety.
The Bloomfield Hills Surf Club was established in 1962 as a private community swim club serving dozens of surrounding communities. In 1966, the I-75 business loop cut through these communities leaving the Surf Club isolated from those communities.
With the population growth in the area over the past 40 years, it is impossible for children to get to and from the Surf Club and the surrounding neighborhoods safely without the use of a motor vehicle. Surrounding the area are numerous bike and pedestrian paths, but none that allow for the safe passage across the 6 lane, I-75 feeder section of Square Lake Road. In addition, the surrounding communities have no access to newer paths connecting to the larger Clintion River Trail and Oakland County trail system.
Without pedestrian access to this area, the community immediately surrounding the Surf Club has no safe access to the Oakland County trail system, and The Surf Club is inaccessible to families that would like to safely visit without the use of a motor vehicle.

Many pedestrians, including young children, cross Lansdown Road every day at its junction with Julian Road and Guinea Lane.
At present, this is a difficult and dangerous crossing due to the heavy volume of traffic in all directions.
Bath and North East Somerset Council should consider all possible measures to improve the safety of pedestrians crossing here.
This petition is supported by the Circus Area Residents Association.
A recent death has opened my eyes to the dangerous intersection of Tranquille Road and Southill Street and the need for a pedestrian crosswalk signal.
On the evening of January 31st 2009, a young man was hit while using a crosswalk at Tranquille Road and Southill Street. He was pronounced dead at the Royal Inland hospital. Speed and alcohol were not involved in this accident. This intersection has a confusing turning lane, which caused the pedestrian to be obscured from through traffic by a turning vehicle. A vehicle going through the intersection hit the pedestrian while he was crossing.
There is heavy traffic flow along Tranquille Road because it is the quickest way to and from the airport. I myself have experienced one of the many “close calls” that happen at this intersection.
This area in Brocklehurst is a walking community since there is a high school, a elementary school and a Boy and Girls club just down Southill and a large shopping complex including; a grocery store, a pharmacy, a thrift store, a movie store, a gym, convience store, a bakery, a salon, a pizza shop and others. Also in the area are apartment buildings and retirement homes. These are all within walking distance of the crosswalk on Tranquille Road.
As concerned residents of Kamloops especially Brocklehurst, we should NOT WAIT until another member of our community is lying in the road dead from lack of pedestrian visibility. Now is the time to act to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again.
JPMorgan Chase is working in partnership with property development company Hammersons and the City of London Corporation to create a 950,000 sq ft building on a relatively small site in the City of London which immediately adjoins the residential Barbican Estate, home to some 5,000 people, and a Grade II listed building.
If approved, the JP Morgan office block be the largest building in the City and will completely overshadow and wall-in the Eastern side of the Barbican.
Currently the site contains generous open space and public gardens, raised above the ground, with interconnecting pedestrian bridges. These walkways form several access routes to the Barbican, which keep pedestrians away from the noise and hazards of London Wall - a major East-West traffic artery through central London. The proposed scheme will remove these, and create a somewhat smaller park at ground level immediately next to this busy road.
What are currently pleasant and safe pedestrian-only routes will be replaced by busy street-level crossings and streetside pavements. It will close and also build over an ancient city street - Fore Street - creating a large and impermeable block in the heart of the City.
21. 3 ROUNDABOUTS
REQUIRED: 3 ROUNDABOUTS ALONG THE A359 MUDFORD ROAD, JUST OUTSIDE OF YEOVIL.
1)On the junction of Stone Lane, Coombe Street Lane and Mudford Road.
2)On the junction of St.Michaels Avenue and Mudford Road.
3)On the junction of Lyde Road and Mudford Road.
If, like me, you regularly use this road, then you will know the 3 junctions that should be made into roundabouts,
Junction "1 & 2" cause long tailbacks in all directions at peak periods, and often 1 causes a knock-on effect with the other.
Junction "3" is unsafe, with vehicles entering Yeovil not realising there is a busy junction and bend there.
The os grid references for each site (displayed as x,y) are

On October 3, 2006, an innocent bystander was hit by a car, and seriously injured at the intersection of North Frontage Road and College Street, in New Haven, CT.
This incident is just one example of a larger pedestrian safety problem. Unfortunately, accidents and "close-calls" at this intersection are not rare. The New Haven Department of Traffic and Parking reported 23 accidents at North Frontage Road and College Street in 2003 alone, the most recent year for which data is available. (A link to an article written by a local journalist about the same issue is above.)
In response to the dozens of accidents that have taken place at the North Frontage-College intersection, the Department's apathy toward fixing the problem, and given that all adjacent intersections indeed have basic pedestrian safety features in place, we propose the following petition.
Provide a pedestrian and equestrian bridge from bike path close to Paseo Esteban to North western side of Ambuehl Elementary.
Traffic has conjested La Novia during school hours. Many children ride bikes from neighboring houses South of La Novia/Calle Arroyo. They must commute all the way down the bike path across a narrow bridge that is shared with vehicles.
Eventually, bikes could be ridden to new San Juan Hills high school without the danger of riding on Ortega Highway.
The speed limit is 25 miles an hour from NMMC till you leave Fort Kent. I have clocked 10 ton trucks going approximately 38-42 miles per hour.
This is a high pedestrian and children area. This is the normal speed not a few individual trucks or companies.
I am trying to prevent a tragedy before it occurs.
January 26, 2006
The gates were open when the school opened in 199.
They were closed when the new community centre was being built and the Phase II.
The pedestrian bridge at Sunnyslope Avenue was temporarily closed by Councilmember Wendy Greuel in July, 2004. Ms. Greuel will be making a final decision by November 8 or 9.
Our neighborhood has seen many road improvements over the last two years, but one significant issue continues to haunt us all, -- the dangers for any pedestrian, both young and old. *Over 110,000 pedestrians are injured every year and many are even killed by automobiles. This carnage is attributable only in part to individual misjudgment -- a failure to "look both ways" as children are taught. These deaths an injuries are also the consequences of a transportation system gone badly wrong -- a system focused on making the streets safe for cars instead of making communities safe for people.
Indeed, people are 1.6 times more likely to get killed by a car while walking than they are to be shot and killed by a stranger with a gun.
An in fact our own neighborhood has had consistent trouble with speeders, hazardous driving and lack of accessible walkways. One neighbor was hit just a year ago and got seriously injured.
Two important points:
1)Senior Citizens Are At The Highest Risk and
account for 23 percent of all pedestrian
2)Most Fatalities Occur On Neighborhood Streets, More than half -- 55 percent -- of all pedestrian deaths by automobiles occur on neighborhood streets.
Let's take a step forward to gaining back our streets for those that want to walk, run, exercise, and enjoy our beautiful neighborhood. There are many attractions, such as the pond and the pool that are just not accessible to the average walker/family. Sidewalks can be the beginning to opening up ourselves to a new way of life in Fairfax Station.
