Bill Cash MP warns Staffordshire County Council of concerns for public safety, businesses and parking at proposed pedestrian crossing at Upper Tean

Press release 25/11/09

 
Following objections from local residents on the proposed pedestrian crossing on the A522 High Street/New Road Upper Tean’s pedestrian crossing facilities, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“This measure for a new crossing was supposed to support the pedestrian flow from the Mill Development from Hall Yard but it creates a dangerous threat to public safety. As Checkley Parish Council have stated, vehicles exiting the Mill Development will be consciously looking left and pulling straight onto the zebra crossing. This is a hazard.
 
“Those with local businesses will lose parking spaces on the street and it will have a detrimental impact on their business.
 
“There are also concerns that by taking away the corner of New Road, it will cause people to step onto the road at this point and it is obvious that this will be highly dangerous.”
 
“I have written to Staffordshire County Council so that they can address these concerns and I would welcome the views of any of my constituents where they are affected by these proposals.”
