The raised zebra crossing is now finished, and what an utter waste of money.
I stood and watched for a few minutes on Friday 17th February and not one driver even slightly slowed down.
I’m sure we all knew it wouldn’t work (except the Council).
The real answer is a light controlled crossing, however, it is only normally used by pedestrians for about an hour in the mornings and the same in the afternoons, five days a week during school terms.
