Selborne Road safety: petition launched

A Crosspool resident has launched a petition to review the layout of Selborne Road following the fatal accident last month.

Organiser Carol Hanson said: “I have lived on Selborne Road for over 15 years and have never known such a volume of traffic. I am hoping to get some form of traffic calming measure following the tragic accident a few weeks ago. I shall be attending the Open Meeting on 28 July with fellow residents to put my case forward to the councillors etc.”

The petition can be found in many of our local shops, including Bamforths, The Post Office in Spar, GT News, Green Cross chemist, Alex Gage Optometrist and Philip James butcher.

Police appeal following Crosspool collision

Police are appealing for witnesses following a collision involving a pedestrian and a black Vauxhall Astra on Selborne Road around 9:50am on Thursday.

The pedestrian, an elderly woman, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Anyone witnessing the collision is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 236 of 2 June 2016.

Our thoughts are with the pedestrian and her family and friends.
