fears raised over incomplete Burnham pedestrian crossing
of a Burnham-On-Sea pedestrian crossing have this week called
on Somerset County Council to urgently restore markings along
a busy road.
zebra crossing in Berrow Road, close to the junction with Rectory
Road, has not had the usual white painted road markings since
roadworks were carried out 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.
spokesman for Somerset County Council told Burnham-On-Sea.com
on Wednesday (August 3rd): "This stretch of Berrow Road was
recently improved using a technique called surface dressing."
this we have to wait a short time until loose chippings are removed
before we can reinstate the road markings. We have asked our contractor
to ensure this happens as soon as possible."
