RESIDENTS are being urged to put forward their views on proposed safety measures in Lower Hanham Road and Hanham Road.
A long campaign by residents, councillors and MP Chris Skidmore for action curb traffic speeds and protect pedestrians has resulted in proposals for a zebra crossing just south of the junction with Mount Hill Road.
The plans also include a speed hump, and beacon lights. High friction surfacing is set to be installed on the approach from the north of the zebra, to improve stopping for vehicles heading downhill.
People have until August 10 to submit their comments to South Gloucestershire Council.
Conservative councillors June Bamford, Brenda Langley and Jason Pearce, who represent Hanham, said: “We are delighted that South Gloucestershire Council is considering installing these new traffic measures and want to thank them for bringing these plans to the public for consultation.
“With the road regularly used every day, it is important that we are doing what we can to protect pedestrians and all other road users, and we hope residents will show a unified voice to support road safety in their community.”
