Crosspool road safety online petition launched

Following last week’s Open Meeting, a local resident has launched an online petition to improve road safety in Crosspool.

View/sign the petition – Sheffield City Council website

The petition reads:

We the undersigned petition the council to:

  1. Implement a reduction in the speed limit to 20mph for the shopping precinct area at Crosspool and the parts of the service roads of Selbourne Road, Watt Lane, Benty Lane, and Sandygate Road nearest to the precinct
  2. Help to enforce this new limit with traffic calming measures including the ‘humping’ of the four existing Zebra Crossings.

Crosspool shopping precinct is a busy area used by large numbers of unaccompanied schoolchildren and with a high number of elderly residents. Recently an elderly resident was killed in a traffic accident on one of the crossings. Vehicles travel at high speed through the shopping precinct and it is inevitable that further accidents resulting in serious injury or death will occur unless preventative, safety measures are taken.
