Safe crossing at entrance to Merrist Wood Campus on Holly Lane, Worplesdon, Surrey
- Surrey County Council
- United Kingdom
Every day, literally hundreds of pedestrians, largely made up of Guildford College students and staff, cross Holly Lane at the entrance/exit to Merrist Wood Campus. The area is a blind spot for both motorists and pedestrians and with vehicles often travelling at high speeds, it has become increasingly unsafe.
Guildford College Students' Union are leading this campaign with the full backing of the college and The Principal. The college has a large population of young people from age 14 upwards as well as many students with disabilities and the safety of all is of major concern.
We the undersigned call on Surrey County Council to provide sufficient road safety measures (eg. pelican crossing) to be installed at the entrance to Guildford College, Merrist Wood Campus at Holly Lane in Worplesdon, Surrey.
It is currently a danger to both pedestrians and motorists and without a safe area to cross, we continue to face the alarming reality of a fatality occurring.
