Long-awaited Burnham pedestrian crossing confirmed for early 2015

A long-awaited pedestrian crossing along a busy road in Burnham-On-Sea has moved a step closer this week, according to the town's County Councillor.

Cllr Peter Burridge-Clayton, pictured, said a formal contract for the work to construct the new crossing in Berrow Road has been signed with a building firm.

"I can confirm that the work order has this week been placed with the contractor and everything is now on track for the work to go ahead," he said.

The new crossing will be installed on the busy stretch of road outside the Kathleen Chambers care home, operated by the Royal National Institute Of The Blind, near the Texaco petrol station.

The work was previously delayed after flooding last winter meant higher-priority road repair schemes needed to go ahead first. The crossing is now scheduled to be completed in January or February.

Harvey Siggs, the county council's highways cabinet member, said earlier this autumn: "The Berrow Road crossing is on our priority list and is scheduled to go ahead early in 2015. The exact timing may be weather dependent if we have more flooding or a very icy winter, but it is scheduled to be completed this financial year."
