New Western Road crossing

The new pedestrian crossing on Western Road will be installed on the week starting 10th March.

This is good news as the promise had been made for the crossing to be installed during the current financial year.

The aim has been to make it easier and safer for people living on the western side of town - in the St Johns, Chapel and Priory areas - to walk into the town centre. The first crossing - by the railway bridge at Newport - has been rather controversial as a formalised crossing was preferred by most but blocked by the highways engineers.

However, this second crossing - to be sited on the section near the junction with Westgate Street - will be a full controlled crossing.
