Safety measures at the pedestrian crossing in High Street
The installation of safety barriers and bollards adjacent to the High Street pedestrian crossing is set to go ahead. In response to safety concerns the Town Council set aside £19,000 in the current year’s budget to get this work done.
The matter has been discussed with the Highway Authority and following a site meeting and negotiations on slight alterations, the proposals have been amended. The cost of delivering these works is now estimated at £7,709.22 plus VAT which is a considerable reduction in the original amount set aside.
Labour Councillors will press for this work to be carried out as soon as possible.
