pedestrian crossing completed after safety fears raised
of a Burnham-On-Sea pedestrian crossing have this week welcomed
the completion of work to restore safety markings there.
Monday this week, the zebra crossing in Berrow Road, close to
the junction with Rectory Road, had not had its usual white painted
road markings after roadworks were carried out there last month.
nearby resident contacted Burnham-On-Sea.com to raise awareness
of the condition of the crossing, adding that it is a risk to
partially-sighted pedestrians who rely on the markings as indicators
to cross the road safely.
working for Somerset County Council completed the work on Monday.
A spokesman said: "This stretch of Berrow Road was recently
improved using a technique called surface dressing."
this we had to wait a short time until loose chippings were removed
before we could reinstate the road markings."
