Hove residents call for new footbridge
3:40pm Tuesday 5th March 2013 in News
Campaigners are calling for a safer route across a busy dual carriageway.
Dozens of children and parents have to cross Hangleton Link Road in Hove every day on the way to school.
It could also be used by parents going to the nearby Sainsbury’s supermarket.
Coun Barnett said: “They have got bridges in the Old Shoreham Road, Hove, and in West Sussex near the colleges. “There’s money in the kitty for it and, with all the 20mph and cycle lane spending, maybe they should find some money for the safety of the children?”
A council spokeswoman said it had a points system for pedestrian crossings and this request would be considered as part of the annual crossing request assessments.
