We have been successful in its bid to Transport for London (TfL) to fund accessibility improvements across the Borough. To improve pedestrian safety and accessibility to Haslemere Primary School and Church Road Children's Centre in Church Road it is proposed to introduce a zebra pedestrian crossing in Church Road as shown on the plan overleaf. This will reduce the risk of personal injury and provide a safer crossing facility for pedestrians. To safely introduce the crossing, certain alterations to the road layout in the vicinity will be required. These include widening of the existing islands and the relocation of existing lamp column. This will ensure that suitable visibility is provided for pedestrians and approaching vehicles.
What happens next
A notice of our intention to introduce the crossing will be published in the local newspaper and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Any comments must be put in writing by no later than 27 May 2016, quoting reference Church Road ZEBRA addressed to:
Environment and Regeneration Department
A copy of the notice and plan identifying the area affected by the proposal can be inspected during working hours, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm at the following address:
