Safety fears raised over incomplete Burnham pedestrian crossing

Users of a Burnham-On-Sea pedestrian crossing have this week called on Somerset County Council to urgently restore markings along a busy road.

The 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.

One 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.

A 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."

"Following 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."
