Petition to West Berkshire Council to improve safety for people crossing the A4 at Wigmore Lane Theale.

I have been collecting signatures for the following petition over the last few days:

We the undersigned ask West Berkshire Council to take measures to improve safety for people crossing the A4 road to get to and from Wigmore Lane, Theale.

Crossing the A4 at this point is dangerous because it is close to the A4/A340 roundabout, traffic is moving fast and visibility to the west is restricted by a bend.
People crossing the A4 at this point include:
  • Residents accessing shops and other facilities in Theale
  • Schoolchildren going to and from school
  • Residents and workers using the bus stop
  • Walkers using the public footpath at the end of the lane
Measures considered should include provision of a pedestrian refuge and a made-up path to and across the existing traffic island.

I have now set up an online version on the West Berkshire Council website

Please sign the on-line petition here
