For the last several years this blog has been campaigning for road safety in the Road View, Mullins and Gibbes area. So it is with a sense of gratitude and satisfaction we report that yesterday history was made in Road View with the setting up of a Pedestrian Crossing in Upper Road View between the northbound and southbound Road View Centre bus stops. If nothing else, this measure should help to slow down traffic in an area notorious for motorists speeding up and overtaking.
We don't know if our campaign had anything to do with bringing about this outcome, but we would like to thank the fifty-odd people who signed our petition, the current and immediate past St. James North Parliamentary Representative who both wrote letters on our behalf, and the relevant government ministries which are responsible for this development. There is still a lot more to be done to improve road safety for pedestrians and motorists in the area, but this is a good start and we salute it.
